New submission from Brett Cannon:

Now that we have ensurepip, is there any reason to not have the Doc/ Makefile create a venv for building the docs instead of requiring people to install sphinx into either their global Python interpreter or some venv outside of their checkout? Basically it would be like going back to the old Makefile of checking out the code but instead do a better isolation job and let pip manage fetching everything, updating the projects, etc.
