The code in SimpleExamples starts to get to this.  Looks interesting
and powerful.  Either here or on the github readme you should take a
stab at explaining a little more how hard problems using regex get
easier with naomi, illustrated with some simple examples.  Then
maybe with help from community members here, you can develop some
overview / getting started docs that help people get into the code.
