As mentioned before, many apps use more than just python.

I would like to see:

[1] Add hooks so users can write their own parsing
classes to handle different data (file) types.

[2] Add capability to recognize "extra" data by
extension (similiar to
prewrittenFileBasenames in happydocset.py)

    #1 is already included in 2.x and also will be available in
    3.0. Take a look at the docstring converter plugins.

    #2 is going to be handled by 3.0 using the mimetype of the
    file. Each docset will be able to define an action to take
    for a mimetype. Images might be copied over as-is, while
    .txt files could be converted from STNG to HTML.

    Actually, after re-reading this, it sounds like the 2
    requests are related and #1 is not limited to docstrings.
    In any event, it'll be in 3.0.

    #2 has been added to 3.0; the code was checked in a few
    minutes ago.
