I have rewritten all of section 1.3 with a completely new example. I 
hope this is easier to begin with, while still introducing enough 
"interesting" concepts. I could simplify further if needed, so feedback 
is appreciated.

A version of the example (in TTL as a test case) is also attached to 
this email.
