Right then we are definitely not talking about the same thing, because 
this part of the thread forked into Cowboy's getting started chapter 
territory, which is exactly the beginners first steps with Cowboy.

I have no interest in a snippet as small as nodejs, because while 
technically more or less possible, it would not at all be representative 
of code people actually write.

Confusing beginners with that kind of snippet is not something I see as 
any good.
