    Easier example...sphinx is a document generator for python programs (creating docs for the API of programs from source-code comments for example). Spinx depends on html5lib which itself again depends on six...want to make a guess what six uses to generate its API docs? ;) So if you want the api docs of six you will have to first install it without to be able to get a working sphinx install then redo the six on including the building of the API docs.
