I think this is a well defined problem that a designer could take on and
build a concept.  If FlexJS does not support such a design, we just need to
go build it.

The MDLExample has a side drawer.  That is what I meant.  And then each
example type will probably have tabs to show variety.  Or maybe just one
tab depending on how many examples we want to show for each type.

Yes, a description along with the MXML code that went into building each
example would be very important.  More than showing 'FlexJS can do this',
showing 'See how easy FlexJS makes this' is critical.
