Several documents contain invalid reST markup that "leaks" into the 
html output (missing ``, incorrect indentation, etc.)
This patch fixes the obvious ones.

Many thanks! Applied in r68171.

Did you find those yourself, or with some sort of tool?

I did a search on the .html files using a regular expression, and 
manually filtered out the false positives.
The expression used was this "::[^=]|:[a-zA-Z][a-zA-Z0-9]+|`|\.\.\s*\w
I'll try to come up with a useable tool.

Could you also fix the indentation of "Queues" example code at

This patch includes some (sort of) checker for suspicious constructs 
that resembles markup that has leaked into the final output.

It's a new Builder for Sphinx, and works with the docutils nodes, not 
the source files directly.

"doc-Makefile.diff" updates both make.bat and the Makefile, adding a 
new target "suspicious".

The "ignored.csv" file contains the rules to discard false positives.

"builder.diff" updates in Sphinx, adding a new builder 
implemented in; the source code has some comments 
explaining how it's used.

Execute `make suspicious`, a "suspicious.csv" file is created in build/
suspicious containing one line per issue found.

Currently, the only relevant message I get is about the :makevar: role 
usage in c-api/init.rst -- looks like docutils doesn't properly 
processes it.

There is something I don't like in the code -- is 
generic, lives inside the Sphinx directory, but knows not to process 
the "documenting" directory inside Python [there are too much false 
positives there -- most of the examples contain actual reST markup]. 
But I don't know enough of Sphinx to make it better :(

Thanks very much! I've added this to the Python doc tools in r68290.
