Right, it is particularly the interaction between code (python files) 
and doctests that I wonder about. If you *always* (or even usually) 
combine them with code then you may be better off just using 
"load_tests" to load your doctests rather than using a plugin. You lose 
the advantage of discovery then though.

Anyway, when you have a chance any feedback will be much appreciated.
