Heads-up: python{,3}-sphinx-latex subpackage in Rawhide

Hi all,

Follow-up on the Sphinx situation -- given that upstream didn't design
Sphinx to be shipped with the LaTeX components missing (causing import
errors), currently we're back to having all the files in python{,3}-sphinx.
*However* it's probably a good idea to have the split in the future, so
packages using Sphinx that build PDF documentation can still Requires:
python{,3}-sphinx-latex, which the main packages now provide, to be ready
for the split in the future.

The latest F20, F21 and F22 builds (F20 and F21 pushed to testing) also
pull in all the dependencies needed to pass the internal test suite as well
as a manual test building Fedocal's documentation. You would hopefully be
able to no longer require TeX packages directly in your packages.

Karma votes and feedback appreciated as always:


Best regards,
