Personally, I find it impossible in some cases to understand exactly what a function does just from reading a textual description. In those cases, I always refer to the equivalent code if it's given. In fact that's the reason I was looking going the zip equivalent function!
I would feel it's a loss if equivalent code disappear from the docs.
I understand sometimes the code requires maintenance, but I'd rather live with some temporary bugs than lose the equivalent code.
As to subtleties of how it works, that's not really a concern, if that's the only way to understand the precise meaning of whatever it explains.
