zope.minmax-1.1.2 is now on PyPI.

That will take some serious persuading.

We could argue the above, i.e., that 15 different things were tested in one 
doctest file.

Unfortunately, when a single test in a doctest file is mixed with prose 
descriptions to explain parts of the test, zope.testing.doctest counts it as a 
separate test.

This was considered a misfeature in the past and would probably be rejected for 
the same reason now.

People are divided in opinion on this and whenever that happens it's hard to 
push such a change upstream into Python library.

Of course, it may be worth trying if there is a critical mass of supporters.
