I've considered the '>>>' prompt an interpreter prompt, so
>>> write('file', """content""")
always looked a bit magical to me.

Ok, I'll read up.

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.
