There doesn't seem to be a lot of enthousiasm for a Unittest
bakeoff...  Certainly I don't think I'll get to this myself before the

How about the following though: talking of low-hanging fruit, Tim's
doctest module is an excellent thing even if it isn't a unit testing
framework!  (I found this out when I played with it -- it's real easy
to get used to...)

Would anyone object against Tim checking this in?  Since it isn't a
contender in the unit test bake-off, it shouldn't affect the outcome
there at all.
