Yes, I understand. This is why a typical sphinx-based documentation
provides both a Makefile as well as a 'make.bat' file, so calling `make`
will work on UNIX-like systems (Linux, OSX) where the "make" tools is
available, as well as Windows, where this will translate into an
invocation of the "make.bat" script.
