> yes.  I suggest adding doctest.py plus one unit test implementation.

I second this vote for doctest (in addition to a unittest thing).  I
propose that Tim checks in his latest version of doctest.  It should
go under Lib, not under Lib/test, I think.  (Certainly that's how Tim
has been proposing its use.)

It requires LaTeX docs, but since it's got a great docstring, that
should be easy.
