One problem I can see with the current implementation of using
minimock + doctest is that if you have more than one mock object
needed for a particular function call in a test, the output from each
mock will be interleaved;  there should really be some way to use
minimock so that you can output a call log from each mock individually
after calling the function to test.

Of course, that might need to be a feature in
still_small_but_slightly_large_than_minimock.py ;-)
