I for one can tell you it would be very useful to me. I love it
whenever I find an example that not only shows me the tight view, but
also how it fits into the context. The biggest problems I usually have
is when I find examples on the web (C++, C#, Java, CSS or the like)
that are fragments. The fragments never seem to scale back out into my
little projects.
