Thanks!  If you want to get going quickly, feel free to grab my
toolchain, it's available right there:


there are a few things that are needed to make building a normal
website more convenient with sphinx, and I think I've taken care of
that with the tools listed there (making it easy to automatically
sync/upload any static files you have locally like pdfs of talks and
papers is probably the main point).

Yes.  I believe it's also possible to tell sphinx that certain pages
are kept as pure html and never held in reST, though I'm not sure
right now what the call/parameter is for that.
