I am not blaming anyone, just pointing out a non ideal situation. It has
already improved a lot with the matplotlib guys and the scipy guys
merging some changes in extensions and publishing the extensions in an
importable part of their source tree.

It is true that I'll be happier when I will be able to import the
only_directive, and the auto_summary from sphinx :).

Thanks for your great work,
