Django's doctest clashes with coverage.py

Description

When you use coverage.py in "manage.py test" it incorrectly reports
some statements as not executed. This is a known issue with
coverage.py. From http://nedbatchelder.com/code/modules/coverage.html
:

"Older versions of doctest interfere with coverage's tracing of
statements, and you may get reports that none of your code is
executing. Use this patch to doctest.py if you are experiencing
problems."

I checked, the patch from Zope does help. The attached file
contains the patch as applied to django.test._doctest.

The previous patch doesn't apply cleanly to the current trunk.

(In [6851]) Fixed #6024: Django's doctest no longer clashes with coverage.py. Thanks to Ned Batchelder for the original fix, and Todd O'Brian for his update to make it work with Django.
