Because I hate it when my code emits DeprecationWarnings, and I wasn't
sure I could throw a switch and migrate to stdlib's doctest.py today
without extensive tests/preparation.

Key word being "wasn't".

I migrated my codebase to use stdlib's doctest.py today, and nothing
broke, to my surprise.  Even coverage support continues to work fine (at
some point just having 'import doctest' could make bin/test --coverage
forget about half the code it's seen).

So, I'm fine with a DeprecationWarning.
