the code examples in the documentation strings in those templates that 
Campbell showed in his presentation yesterday reminded me of the 
doctests proof of concept that i did a few weeks ago - posted about it 
to bf-python but at least he said he'd pretty much missed it so am just 
reminding of that here .. perhaps regression testing, and that special 
technique to do it,  is of interest to some of the devs who are not on 
the python  list too.

doctests is perhaps more relevant to the style of example documentations 
that there are in the api docs. (although, as mentioned in the original 
post, a full regression suite is different from what you want to show as 
the examples, but that is no prob as you can select where you put which
