Well, I didn't say it was useful. Only cool ;-)
When you come from a non-Python language, where such things are nigh on
impossible, anything 
like doctest *is* cool.

> I believe code should be in code, even if it is testing code.

You're right. I wouldn't want to use doctest to replace a proper set of
unit tests. 
However, for example code or a quick hack, it's ideal.

Does anyone know if this kind of thing is a feature of other dynamic
interpreted languages? 
Or just Python?
