1. I saw an email thread that stated that the twisted.trial.doctest feature is going away, is this 
true? If not, could I get a simple example?

2. I am working thru the docs at: 
http://twistedmatrix.com/projects/core/documentation/howto/policy/test-standard.html and the section 
'Running the Tests' doesn't make sense to me:
Running the Tests

$ Twisted/admin/runtests
2.a I don't have either the Twisted directory or the Twisted/admin/runtests. Is this the current way 
to run tests?

2.b I have looked for the 'runtests' after installing via debian's apt-get (below) and building off 
the latest svn source:
