I've considered the '>>>' prompt an interpreter prompt, so >>> write('file', """content""") always looked a bit magical to me. > The API for adding additional global variables in the test > setup is well documented and used all the time.

The ones available for, say, buildout, look so useful, I thought they might be a convention, and packaged. In trying to understand code I like to tweak the doctest and see what happens. I'll look into the feasibility of adding a line to the top of buildout/README.txt like >>> import dtglobals where dtglobals would expose all the good !magic, without requiring the test scaffolding.
