# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-

    Parses a directory tree looking for Python modules and packages and creates
    ReST files appropriately to create code documentation with Sphinx.  It also
    creates a modules index (named modules.<suffix>).

    This is derived from the "sphinx-autopackage" script, which is:
