Provide wheels packages

It would be really nice if sphinx supported wheel packages. It's the future of python packaging, it's easy to provide and mostly it speeds up a lot the install process (even more on python3 because the 2to3 conversion is made by the package manager and not at install time)

    +1, Sounds good.

    $ pip-2.7 install wheel
    $ pip-2.7 wheel --no-deps Sphinx
    ...
    $ pip-3.3 install wheel
    $ pip-3.3 wheel --no-deps Sphinx
    $ ls wheelhouse
    Sphinx-1.2-py26-none-any.whl
    Sphinx-1.2-py27-none-any.whl
    Sphinx-1.2-py32-none-any.whl
    Sphinx-1.2-py33-none-any.whl
    

    However, wheel does not support Python-2.5 and 3.1.

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
