Sounds great! I will try and come up with some notes by tonight. This is
really encouraging!

That would be very useful indeed - maybe some explanations from people
using it on how to and how not to. I would be happy to provide any
resources like web site place etc.

I have tried to use the three examples apps (the robot, command line tool,
and line mode browser) as real life tools instead of just demo tools. I
think that this is the only way to ensure that they are up to date. We are
actually using them for maintaining our web site around here. However, it
would be very useful to extend this list!
