OK, so the installation procedure is:

1) svn checkout svn://svn.berlios.de/docutils/trunk docutils
2) ( cd docutils/docutils; python setup.py build && sudo python setup.py
install )
3) cd sandbox/jensj/latex_math/; sudo install *.py /usr/bin

I was a bit confused by the doc
docutils/sandbox/jensj/latex_math/README.txt, which says 
"The plug-in adds..."

So I'm looking around the docutils install directory for a place to install
plugins.  I guess that's not the correct procedure.
