Can this be simpler?
Yes. Don't install docs with your package. People who want them installed locally can just download your source install or use easy_install -e.
Also, if your module is popular enough that people make Linux system packages for it, they will make sure the docs get put in a blessed install location. Python doesn't currently have a blessed install location for documentation, though perhaps it *should* have one in distutils2.
