Michael, I'm not quite sure if I understand this "simple webapp"
proposal correctly. We do have a "clean-webapp" target which AFAIR
builds a webapp without samples or documentation.

The other issue is the current samples we ship. A lot lives in a
single sitemap file which is not really encouraging to try to
understand what happens in there. Perhaps, we could all adopt some
samples and split this monster into several sub sitemaps that contain
just the parts for this particular sample. Have a look at the current
database block samples to see what I mean.
