I love the typo "staste". A mix between state and taste. The answer will 
definitely be taste based as we all have different minds.

For doctest, my taste goes for the simplicity (and powerfulness) of 
minimock. [1]
For unittest, my taste goes for mockito for Python [2].

But this is just my taste (at the moment).
