My $.02:

How about a simple text editor?  Whatever application you present you
should probably have either an appendix or an early chapter explaining
the code that will stay the same across each implementation.

By the way, it would be nice if this were an online book.  You may get
a lot of good feedback if people can see it as you write it.  Bruce
Eckel has had some success with this model.
