Given the problems Django itself has experienced using doctests as a primary testing strategy, and the effort that's recently gone into removing them, do we really want to be encouraging Django users to adopt practices that have served us so poorly?
Seems like the sample doctest in the stub tests.py generated by startapp should probably go away.
Optionally, the Django testing docs could also be given a quick once-over to see if there are places we should be warning users against the siren song of using doctests as a primary test strategy.
