`sphinx-quickstart` is for Sphinx, what `grokproject` is for Grok. The
script generates a new sphinx project and also generates some
Makefiles/make.bat files to rebuild docs on changes. I guess what
Sebastian wanted to say is: generate a new project using
`sphinx-quickstart`, pick the makefiles and dump the rest.

With newer versions of Sphinx, however, the commandline API of the
scripts used in the makefiles might change (although IIRC there were not
much changes yet, actually only additions). For example nowadays
Makefiles support ``make linkcheck`` or ``make doctest`` which older
versions of Sphinx didn't support.

Yes, that might make sense IMO.

Best regards,
