.. and/or make a single-container (eg: CHM[1]) out of it. I guess this feature could be made optional, so developers can include simple docs without having to worry about any mandatory standard, and we could contribute a Sphinx patch to automatically produce toc.xml.


[1] ActivePython already includes extra docs (tutorials, peps. etc..) in a CHM file along with the Python docs
