Hmm. I used this as a chance to look up the reST documentation. They
seem to have added doctest support a while ago. I didn't notice that.
Until now, the syntax highlighting for reST in my editor only recognized
it as a literal block when prefixed with ::

They also say that indentation isn't needed for doctests. I tried this
on a doctest I was working on right now and both the docutils `rst2html`
and the test runner where able to cope with it. Looks like I need to get
an update on my syntax highlighting. Otherwise doctests are extremely
painful to edit ...
