Me either.  Here's what I did:

    * download and expand the latest docutils snapshot
    * replicate Jens's work in a directory called "math" at the top level of
      the docutils directory
    * edited setup.py to get them installed:

diff -u setup.py.~1~ setup.py
--- setup.py.~1~        2007-03-21 18:45:38.000000000 -0500

    * ran "python setup.py install"

That's probably more than necessary, but with the math subdir I can easily
move the whole thing to a new snapshot and the setup.py change lets me
install them transparently.
