Robb,
  If by "Python's doc system" you are referring to the markup/tools
used for the standard Python documentation, I'd like to point out that 
although the markup language is implemented in LaTeX, it is based on
language semantics and not on presentation.  There are glitches, and
some islands of old markup remain, but those are being rooted out and
brought up to date.
  And I'm always willing to entertain suggestions for improvements!
Just send mail to python-docs at python.org to report bugs, or join the
documentation SIG (see http://www.python.org/sigs/doc-sig/) to discuss 
structural improvements.


  -Fred
