 Ok, so they aren't automatically generated?

 Eg. the cli.rst file:

index 0000000..8679906
--- /dev/null
+++ b/docs/sphinxdocs/cli.rst
@@ -0,0 +1,27 @@
+.. automodule:: cli
+.. autofunction:: sigquit
+.. autoclass:: CliError
+   :members:
+   :show-inheritance:

...looks like it's just a dump of (part of) the documentation comments
in that file. Are you writing the above by hand?
