I am attaching an updated version of the patch for feedback.

The latest version of the patch I developed and used in the real-world example of fixing both the module and documentation file doctests for the ipaddress module (and its HOWTO) in issue 15888.

The patch includes the following additional features:

(1) the user is warned if a user-selected test file contains no tests
(2) tests to run can be specified using one or more globs (e.g. fdoc:howto*)
(3) the doc directory can be specified relatively (e.g. --docdir Doc)
(4) passing --docall adds all doctests to the test run selection
(5) passing --docunsafe runs doctests for all selected tests, whether or not the test files are marked "doctest safe"

The patch also includes usage documentation towards the beginning.
