sphinxext: Start parsing '' as rST

Users expect this to be parsed as rST and write their docstrings
accordingly. This has the potential to introduce warnings for users with
improperly formatted rST and these warnings can be promoted to errors if
'sphinx-build' is used with the '-W' option. As a result, we disable the
'warning-is-error' logger for these options. We may wish to change this
behavior in the future.

It is not really possible to test this yet as the output wouldn't look
much different. In addition, the error messages generated are rather
unhelpful. Both of these can be changed in a future modification.
