If you want several set up and tear down cycles in a single doctest I
would suggest the footnote addition we made to doctest. (I _really_
need to spend some time deforking our version).
On the other hand, it sounds like you don't really want a traditional
setup because the things being set up are important to understanding the
intention and meaning of the tests, so they should probably be included
in the test itself. The tear down is much less important, so a footnote
or test-wide tear down would be more appropriate there.
