Ok, I'll go ahead and work out a way for people to contribute.

@Nick, yes to include CQL examples, and to give them first, but I would also keep the rpc

@Yang, Happy to re-arrange things once we have some content. For better or worse I used the
Hive wiki as guide  . Creating new content
takes time, first I'd like to improve what we have and make sure it is correct.
