What an interesting question.
I'm not aware of any tutorials that do this (although mine does in a few 
- eg the address book and myultiplication table examples - its not a 
approach). I'll be interested to see if anyone else knows of anything.

There are plenty of beginners tutorials including mine.
I just don't know of any that use multiple solutions to a single problem
as a teaching tool.
