I tried playing with this but unfortunately it doesn't seem to work  
well with a buildout based package.  It couldn't find the directory to  
zip and I wasn't able to use -d to do the right thing.

It's easy enough to upload documentation manually.  Go into the  
directory that contains your index.html file and do something like  
'zip -r docs.zip .' then go to your package's page on pypi and scroll  
down for the upload form.
