Brett updated the docs for the test package to (correctly) point out that it is our internal testing package and isn't subject to the same stringent backwards compatibility rules as the rest of the standard library.

A "see also" link pointing readers that have landed there over to the unittest module for their testing infrastructure needs would be a friendly thing to include.

Hi Nick,
the "See also" section already points to unittest module; are you asking to extend its description to mention that's the tool people should use for their unittest suites?

Yeah, I think I wrote this issue based on the diff that added the new note at the top, rather than looking at the existing intro text that already references unittest and doctest.

No need to change anything after all.
