Looks like the documentation for doctest could use an update... http://docs.python.org/dev/library/doctest.html#unittest-api I'd write a patch (hello-to-my-friend-jesse-noller), but I'm not entirely sure what to say (tl;dr) - would replacing the code sample & changing its description to read "To integrate with unittest discovery, include the following in a module of unittests:" suffice? 

I just went ahead and created bug 8564 w/ a patch if anyone cares.  Thanks all.
