Your comment about proprietary code being a basis for lack of iterator 
examples. There are lots of well-defined examples for things that 
big-table stores are good at. I just don't want lack of examples to be 
written off as lacking due to proprietary code -- it should be something 
that we work towards as a community instead of accepting as a deficiency.
