Request for restoring chapter enumeration in the Python docs for Python
2.6 and newer releases.

In the new style Sphinx documentation for Python the enumeration of
sections and subsections has been dropped. This is highly unusual for a
technical documentation and in particular for a body of documents that
represent a de-facto standard. An easy access to content is required
even in communication being not web based where URLs can be copied and
sent. Even right now the chm documents provided in the Windows
distribution of Python 2.6 are of reduced value. Given that there are
chapters with pretty generic titles like "How it works" the lack of
enumeration causes disorientation.
