"2to3 can also refactor doctests. To enable this mode, use the -d
Note that *only* doctests will be refactored. This also doesn’t require the
module to be valid Python. For example, doctest like examples in a reST
document could also be refactored with this option."

Anyway, the change can also be made with a good editor and search-replace. I
am all for changing this, my point was simply that the doc wiki is not the
best tool to make changes like these (not that I don't love the doc wiki,
it's great).
