Adding examples for the user guide(s) would be most welcome. As an
experienced programmer very new to Erlang, seeing example code is
crucial to the learning process.
This is especially true when programming objectives span multiple Erlang
modules of code. It can be near impossible to decipher reference-only
documentation for dependencies between parts of any system.
This work would be most welcome indeed.
