As for ipython, you only get html and pdf from me.  I don't know if that html 
is enough for you to make a .chm out of it or not.  If there's anything I can 
do from linux to make the process easier, I'd love to help.  But the sources 
from the manual are in lyx, so I'm limited to formats I can export from lyx 
(html, latex, postscript, pdf, docbook).

You exaggerate, but only a tiny, tiny bit.  Distutils is easily the worst part 
of the python standard toolset, by a very long shot.
