many times in many places.
For my own record (I must have missed this many times in many

No. WRT doc tests:
- If a file is documentation and a test, make sure it is good
documentation. In that case, documentation comes first. Don't add so
many tests that it ruins the documentation.
- Test edge cases in separate tests. These are typically short-ish
strings in test modules.
- A variation is to have a narrative that doesn't try hard to be
documentation. The narrative can be convenient, up to a point, even
in a test. These should be clearly marked as not being documentation.
