It isn't docutils version that matters actually.
It turns out there are 2 completely separate impls of rst2html5. One
that is bundled with docutils on pip, which is the one libvirt works
with. The other is in a rst2html5 package on pip.
Basically need to remove the standalone rst2html5 pacakge that was
installed from pip, or remove /usr/local/bin from $PATH so that it
finds the from one docutils in /usr/bin
