I was wondering whether doctest could somehow be integrated with
Haskell's test-framework[1] and/or HTF package[2], as an additional
test-provider, as I tend to write trivial test-cases as haddock comments
but more extensive ones as dedicated unit-tests. This would be possible
with Python's `nose` testing-framework[3]

Do You have any suggestions/ideas how that could be accomplished?
