Thanks! - I guessed something like that would be useful, it certainly
would have for me a few weeks ago. I've written a first draft that
covers the above but it needs some reworking, simplification and
clarification (http://exploring-grok.blogspot.com/). Since you think
something like this would be of use to the Grok documentation, I'll
submit it in a few days once I've made the necessary modifications and
let you guys tear it to shreds!
