Thanks, Jason. You answered the right question. The shorter version is, "If
not epydoc, then what?" As I look around at other forums, I'm seeing a lot
of movement toward Sphinx.

Stephan & John, it would be good to know your thoughts on whether you could
support Sphinx (instead of or in addition to epydoc) for its interface
definitions (parameter types, return values, etc.)

I'm not sure what it is you're looking for here. 

I actually use pydoc for my current work project. However, I've been using
sphinx on some of my personal projects with great success. Plus restructured
text (read: sphinx) in compatible with rtfd.org
(readthedocs.org) as well as github :)
