Example of autoref
Section 1
You can write reference to section title without any definitions:
:ref:`Section 1`
:ref:`Section 2`
:ref:`index/Section 1`
Section 2
Hello world
# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-
Add link-target labels to every sections automatically.
You can make reference :ref:`section-name` without label defintions.
And more, labels which are similar to wiki-names (cf. index/secition-name) are
added in same time.

If you're looking at this, sphinx.ext.autosectionlabel is included with Sphinx 1.4 onwards. The version here has issues with duplicate IDs when the same section name is used more than once in a document; the Sphinx version also sees issues with duplicate labels in this case.
