Root finding is good for an example, but I'm slightly wary because we have
some nice boilerplate routines in Boost.Math for that which handle all the
corner cases etc, and I'd rather folks called those routines than cut and
paste from a - necessarily simplified - example?

We probably have enough to be going on with: I might just add a polynomial
evaluation example because it shows off the expression templates ability to
eliminate temporaries very nicely! :-)

Cheers, John.
