Which is email had to do.

See mimelib.tex in Python's docs -- I had to do the same thing. The
PITA is that I have to build the docs in Python's svn and then copy
them into the sandbox for the standalone distro. This isn't to bad
when it's just one package, but if we adopt this approach more
generally, we may want to establish some guidelines, which of course
I'd be happy to stick to.
