I think if we turned on doctests right now, there would be about 100
test failures, so I've got plenty of my own catching up to do before
doctests really need to be enabled. ;)

I wonder how hard it would be to have simpler local makefiles that
pull the build/install/test instructions out of svn after the update?
That way we don't have to bother the slave maintainers whenever we
want to tweak the build/test parameters.

If I recall correctly, Python does something like this.  I could look
into it if it seems worth doing.
