But that script is a mess, IMHO.

I think that first converting text/plain PEPs to reST can be a good 
solution (as an example, footnotes are not processed by pep2html).

Yes, right.
Now I'm using the version from trunk, thanks.

My working on the refactoring of the new build system is almost done.
I have named it "Igloo".

For people interested:

it runs on my laptop.

Note that commit messages are in italian (sorry), but there is a Changelog.

Now I'm writing some documentation.
