Oh man, that would be awesome! Please! To be honest, I've been
squeezing my brains inside out on an example like this to present.
I thought about the properties code, event handling, etc., but
all those are either not straight forward enough to be digested
in one sitting or do not quite touch on the importance of the
algorithms. Something like xpressive's "proto" library might
have been a good candidate, but expression templates still seem
to be too esoteric for general consumption.

With materials like that and the slides you mention, I could
write a motivational example in no time. Thank you!
