I recently released a new version of doctest-mode [1], and I came across
your email [2] (it was on the first page of google hits for
"doctest-mode"). So I decided to have a go at getting doctest-mode to
play nicely with mmm-mode. The result is available here:

I still consider it alpha code (the version that's available for
download on the official doctest-mode webpage [3] doesn't include the
mmm-mode features), but it works pretty well for me. If you want to
give it a spin, let me know what you think. The following should load
everything you need:

(autoload 'doctest-mode "doctest-mode" "doctest mode" t)
(autoload 'doctest-register-mmm-classes "doctest-mode")
(doctest-register-mmm-classes t t)

It defines 2 classes. Quoting from the docstring for doctest-register-
