I was discussing with laurent and I like his idea.
We could tag
	test with 

and the tests would be used for the Help. We could design test that are more for understanding 
than identifying bugs and we would have a win-win situation: documentation and always in sync. 

	doing the same for class comments would be nice.
	Often in a package you have one or two important classes.

This would be a good incentive to get cool comments.
