Python docs in Info format?

Has anyone got a script to convert the Python docs (particularly the
library reference) to Info format, so they can be browsed with the
Emacs Info browser? That would be much more convenient than having
to fire up a web browser all the time. Thanks.

You can browse Web pages in Emacs using W3.

Yeah, but that's not so nice to navigate. Info is a perfectly good
doc format and it would be nice to be able to crunch those latex files
into info format.

Um, no need to convert:

The scripts you seek are in the Python source and used every time we
do a release :-)

But maybe I've just programmed in enough different languages to
assume that they are, in fact, different.
