That would be great.  Thank you.

Alright.  If that's how both of you feel, then it can't be helped.

But if that's how it is, then maybe it would be a good idea to make the tutorial more distinct?  Right now, the only way I can tell Google has landed me on a tutorial page as opposed to a reference page is the word "tutorial" in the URL and in small print at the very top of the page.  They're styled similarly.  I never even realized they were separate things until today (let alone that one of them must be read skeptically).

Sorry to take up your time.  Thanks for listening.
