FWIW, I wrote some code for the Sphinx extension approach yesterday,
along the 'simplest possible thing' lines. It's less than 200 lines
of Python (though I still need to put in the support for DEFHEADING
and ARCHHEADING). The actual texinfo fragments in the various .hx
files of course would also need to be hand-converted to rST, same
as the hand-written manual .texi file contents.

(This has been easier than my last half-attempt at
updating qapi-gen to support output of rST format...)
