For non-examples in doctests I've been involved in some discussions 
about allowing the inclusion of sections with "just code".  That way if 
you have some sort of support functionality in a doctest (as opposed to 
the test's setUp function) you won't have to use prompts when there 
aren't any actual examples happening.
