"Let's see an expression template type with some operators:"

OK I see it, but I don't understand what you want me to be looking at. There is only one operator (with some caveat) and two macros that could well be operators.

But to be honest, I just looked and didn't find many more cases.

I think you can chalk this up to the general request for the tutorial: slow down and introduce more.

That could be right. However, to me it seems that you chose quite an esoteric template class for the public interface.
