One of the things I've been experimenting with in Paste is fully
doctested tutorials. I'm optimistic about it -- certainly the structure
needs to be better filled out, but I think it is useful. WSGI and some
of the other Paste utilities help quite a bit. I always feel like when
I write docs and tutorials I'm planting a bulb that will grow into a
beautiful flower, but usually the garden gets paved over before spring.
Heh, that's a stupid metaphor. But anyway, if documentation can be
cumulative instead of temporary it makes a huge difference, and testable
documentation is necessary for that.
