At the moment, the only places this is working are:

* the Tutorials
* the User Guide

If you navigate into these, you should get the extra level of depth
("up") shown in the LHS of the navigation bar.

I haven't looked into their searching feature so I'm not sure how easy
or hard that is yet.

If we're happy to have a 'wrapper' site linking down to the docs for
each release, yes. (We certainly don't want to regenerate the docs for
every release every time!) Just as the Bazaar home page is patched into
the navigation bar on the LHS, we can add the top level (wrapper) site in.

This does imply regenerating the wrapper site as part of the RM kicking
off a new release but I suspect it's worth it.

If that's a +1 on the patch, please mark the merge proposal as such.

If it's a +1 on the general direction, we need Canonical IS to install
Sphinx on the server we build the docs on. Let's chat on IRC re how to
make that happen soon.
