The Doc/tools folder in the 2.6 distribution contains docutils, jinja, 
pygments, sphinx folders, which were not there in the 2.6rc2 .tar.bz2. 
Also, there is a roman.pyc in the Doc/tools folder. 

The difference in uncompressed size is about 9MB between 2.6 and 
2.6rc2. The difference in compressed size is 1.5MB. Perhaps including a 
fully functional doc build environment is intentional?

I am not entirely sure, but I think part of the reason was that if the
documentation needed to be built, it would need the snapshot at that
time. Georg? Was it intentional?

I consider this a low priority issue, but needs to be looked at whether
or not it was an oversight or not.

The distribution of these directories wasn't intentional, and they're
not distributed any more in e.g. 2.6.2, so this is already fixed.
