I have been following this approach with the long descriptions for my package descriptions and believe it it a consistent and meaningful way of communicating to a developer. It is not enough for me to see a couple of paragraphs. The doctest text inclusion gives me an immediate answer to what the package is about and how it works. I like what has been done very much and would like it to continue this way. Many thanks.

Since you asked: I like it (in absence of better project web pages).
