  ok, that's something that can be decided by those of you higher up
the food chain; as i said, my only concern is that if i select an
external build directory, nothing should really be generated in the
source directory. but maybe i'm still unfamiliar with the build model
here -- still reading the sphinx docs, starting to really like this.
