Yeah, it's quite likely that several of the doctests/examples
there currently fail. But I think that in many cases a failure to
doctest indicates also that the example is somehow wrong, and
someone trying to follow it would run into the same problem.
The doctests are not run by default, and are not included in the
test suite. The features that allow running them are mostly meant
to make it easier to ensure that all of the examples actually
work. (Though AFAIK nobody has vetted them through :)
