Hi Sandro,

According to codesearch, only 59 packages out of 608 using Sphinx have
|today| somewhere in their .rst files [1]. And I believe most of those 59
already have bugs filed for them.

|today| is for Sphinx the same as __DATE__ is for a C compiler. You do not
suggest to patch gcc to remove support for __DATE__, do you?

Anyway, if you provide a suggestion for how to fix this on Sphinx side
(not *so* hackish as parsing d/changelog), I will look at it.
