Great work, I definitely like the look of the Sphinx documentation.
As a concrete example of your question, I've been working on some
scipy.sparse documentation , and it seems like it will be fairly
lengthy when completed. Would it be appropriate to merge it into the
Sphinx documentation for scipy.sparse , or should the Sphinx docs
be more concise?
