This is very bad news. :-(

I was hoping to be able to use doctest in Twisted-based code after the
refactoring (since I don't grasp how to use it right now). If noone else is
using it, and it slows you down too much, well, go ahead and remove it. :-(

May I ask you to write down a few doc lines about what it would take for me
to reenable it afterwards, if at all feasible? Thank you.
