Well, *I* like the tutorial. I've already started steal,
uh, using, material from it. I intend to include more as time goes

One thing that annoyed me about the tryruby version is that it changed
the text - apparently arbitrarily - with each expression. I *detest*
UI's that change things when they want to (I regularly close dialogs
accidently on OSX because they come up while I'm working in *some
other application* and steal the focus from me). I'm not going to do
that; that's why I list all the sections, and you can display (or not)
by clicking on them. I'm planning on adding a "suggested reading" link
(it's already there if you know where to look, but always does the
same thing :-) under the console that will do what the ruby thing
does, except when the user asks for it, not when I think it should
