I think providing example would be very nice. I honestly think that
perhaps the best place to start would be in Hue, though. Hue already
comes with simple toy example for things like Hive/Pig workflows, etc.

Take a look at those.

Ah! That actually goes beyond examples and would also be quite appreciated.
I'd call those 'Bigdata pipelines blueprints'. There I would encourage folks
to approach it from the Oozie perspective. That's what most of the
heavyweight Hadoop users seems to be doing -- they've got those complex
pipelines with ingest coming from the Flume side of things, batch managed
by Oozie and analytic being provided by Hive/Pig/Spark and most recently Solr.

Personally I think Bigtop is a really good place for these types of blueprints
to be developed and tested.
