I understand the difference, but the fact is that up until yesterday
it *was* a submodule, and hence it was correct and valid code. There
are no PEP8 rules against doing this, hence it has to be viewed as
valid code. Ugly yes, but you can't say it's wrong.

Yes, we did. But now we try to get the deprecation warnings to show up
in the correct place. And we could warn for the usage of some of the
names, but in the message explain that doctest.py is deprecated.
