Oops. I didn't *intend* to leave it out... it's just so new, not 
permanently fixed in my mental model yet. Don't worry. I love it.

I also neglected to mention dynamic examples found in distribution. I'd 
also like to develop dynamic how-tos and tutorials, learning tools with 
hooks to webapp functionality (only in distro). My idea is that a 
dynamic howtos/tutorials would use resources like slash-edit to check 
the work of people walking through a learning process. Resulting files 
could be written to directories, governed by sub sitemaps e.g., where 
learners could incrementally build up the desired result of their 
howto/tutorial. It wouldn't work for all topics, but it might prove 
useful for others.
