Whoopsie!  My local branch is actually correct.  But!  I effectively did 
this in my automation:

    % hg clone 3.4 python-{time}
    % cd python-{time}
    % rm -rf .hg* .bzr* .git*
    % cd ..
    % tar cvfz python-{time}.tgz python-{time}

Can you spot the error?  That's right: when you clone, the clone always 
starts out in "default".  So all the tarballs I've published so far have 
been wrong.  ARGH.  Sorry!

I've added a "hg branch 3.4" in a judicious spot in my automation. The 
resulting tarball doesn't have the sphinx toolchain change.

Look for a new tarball in a few minutes, once "make test" finishes,
