However, none of the options he gave are automatic, so people will keep
running into this. I think building docs should work out of the box, so I
see 2 options:
1. we copy sphinxext in scipy. it's not like it changes often, so keeping
things in sync manually is doable.
2. sphinxext becomes a numpy module that can be imported and used from

Including it in the tarballs while it's not in the repo is not a good idea
imho - tarballs should be exactly the same as the svn tag.
