Well, actually, I was just stupid, and forgot to set __docformat__ to 
reST before processing my python files... Now, I can get them processed.

Indeed, the package is called twice, once with utf8, once with latin1; I 
haven't really looked into it.

Does the latex part of the docstring works ? Eg, I didn't find a way to 
add comment into latex and make them work with :lm:eqn, but I am not 
sure about the syntax (and didn't find any examples in numpy/scipy sources).
