Ah something else: doctests are not fully supported.

./python -m test test_extcall --list-cases

This command has not output, whereas Lib/test/ contains doctests.

test_builtins works because it uses:

def load_tests(loader, tests, pattern):
    from doctest import DocTestSuite
    return tests

whereas test_extcall uses:

def test_main():
    support.run_doctest(sys.modules[__name__], True)

I see two options:

* Replace support.run_doctest() with doctest.DocTestSuite() in all tests
* Enhance --list-cases to discover doctests. support.run_doctest() calls doctest.testmod(), but doctest.testmod() has no API to list tests. testmod() lists tests and directly runs them. Maybe --list-cases can reuse doctest.DocTestSuite(), I don't know.

I chose to merge Louie Lu's PR anyway, since I prefer to move step by step. Supporting test_extcall can be done later.
