While working on the "reproducible builds" effort , we have noticed
that sphinx is generating documentation that is not repoducible.
For example, its output includes non-deterministic memory references
<__main__.A at 0x7f68cb685710>
In addition, various generated (objects.inv, searchindex.js,
translations) do not output their keys in a determinstic order,
resulting in further randomness.
The attached patch attempts to remedy these issues. Once applied, many
packages that use sphinx--but alas not sphinx itself yet!--can be built
reproducibly in our current experimental
