The doctest module has doctest.master symbol:
# For backward compatibility, a global instance of a DocTestRunner
# class, updated by testmod.
master = None

I'm not sure about changing this one. Here there is no slave, so it's less confusing.

But more generally, maybe it's time to remove this deprecated variable only kept for backward compatibility?
