[Python-modules-team] Bug#559916: numpy: please package sphinxext as a package (e.g. python-numpy-sphinxext)

Package: python-numpy
Version: 1:1.3.0-3
Severity: wishlist
File: numpy

Growing number of python packages using sphinx to build their documentation
uses numpy's conventions, thus require sphinxext-ensions from numpy (e.g.
docscrape*py, numpydoc.py etc).  Unfortunately those, although present in numpy
sources, are not provided with any of the binary packages in Debian.

I am not sure if those should be provided under numpy module umbrella
(since they are not actually there), e.g. numpy.doc.sphinxext .

May be it could be numpy-sphinxext ?

It might be worth also consulting "upstream" I guess ;)
