I can't find a way to execute DocTests contained in a separate README.txt file using unittest.main() function. That doesn't allow to control verbosity for debugging.

I am doing it this way in the tests.py

import doctest
import unittest
if __name__ == '__main__':
  runner = unittest.TextTestRunner()
  runner.run(doctest.DocFileSuite('README.txt',
    optionflags=doctest.ELLIPSIS))


I could find a way to subclass TestLoader.loadTestsFromNames() by looking at the source code of undocumented TestProgram. I'd like to see this use case at least covered by documentation if not properly developed for stdlib of Python4.
