test.test_enum is not here. The reader should look into the external 
test module (which may not be supplied along with the module and 
documentation) to understand the example. Or rely on assumptions.

Is it possible to add "invisible" code which doesn't displayed in the 
resulting documentation, but taken into account by doctest?
