The current version of networx, 1.1, needs sphinx 1.0 to build doc,
but 1.0 is still under development and the sphinx version in debian
can't build documentation. Thus for now I'm forced to implement some
sort of workaround to it: I'll install doc/source as doc, and replace
it with he real do when I'll be able to build it from source.

Notes to self: to generate the docs

- build the module: python setup.py build
- run "make -C doc PYTHONPATH=../build/lib/ html"
