I agree about the tutorial and example materials. I did say this was
a first rough draft ;). I was hoping the draft would generate
comments and even motivate others to make corrections/add material.

I'm glad you think it's useful, though. Is it useful enough to add

point that we can add it (taking in mind that we can always add to it
in the future as well)?
