FWIW, there's no problem with a sentence ending with a single colon.
It's only an issue if you want to flag a special interpretation for the
text that follows that sentence.  Just to be precise.

I could envision some sort of heuristic that would recognize an indented
block containing code.  Probably we could go simpler and force the
"literal block" treatment for any indented block that lacks explicit
enumeration markers.  So:

	this->would_be("a literal block");

but:

  - This would not be

Such a thing would likely be a bit fragile (people feel, rightly, that
they can put anything into normal text) but it might just work well
enough.  For best results, it should probably be done as part of Sphinx
itself, rather than yet another ugly hack in the kerneldoc script.

This particular problem may be solvable, and I'll look into it, but not
right away.  The offline world is being rather insistently obnoxious
these days...
