Maybe upstream would accept a patch similar to what I've done before.  It
could map |today| to the value of an environment variable, if it's set.
E.g. something like SPHINX_TODAY.  Then pybuild, dh_python{2,3}, or some other
infrastructure piece could set that to the parsed changelog value.  Generally,
it wouldn't be set, so |today| would have the normal semantics.
