How difficult would it be to generate the doc ? I have not followed in
detail what happened recently on that front. Is sphinx + sphinx ext
the only necessary additional tools ?

What I did for audiolab recently was to use paver to generate the
source distribution for releases: the release sdist generates the
usual sdist (which is kept the same as before - e.g. no need for tools
to build the doc), as well as the doc (html + pdf), and put everything
together. Paver is a mere convenience, and this could be done with
simple scripts, of course,
