No. The current newstyle docs (2.6, 3.0) are static HTML pages.
However, Sphinx can also generate slightly different output which
is then used by a web app that has all the dynamic features for docs
like comments, and among them is also already something like Skip's
"frequently requested modules" list.

I wanted to keep the development docs static, to minimize load on the
docs server, and begin serving the 2.6 or 3.0 docs via the web app as
they are the "official" ones, that is, as soon as one of them is released.


Thus spake the Lord: Thou shalt indent with four spaces. No more, no less.
Four shall be the number of spaces thou shalt indent, and the number of thy
indenting shall be four. Eight shalt thou not indent, nor either indent thou
two, excepting that thou then proceed to four. Tabs are right out.
