[Grok-dev] Grok & the lack of good documentation

I agree that a more complex example for the official tutorial is  
better. The problem when it is too simple is that it doesn't help much  
since you'll never use grok for such simple apps. I think also it  
might give the illusion that Grok is simpler than it is, and thus  
cause frustration.

Grok is a Formula 1 car, you can't just jump in and start driving, but  
once you've done your first laps without crashing you will never want  
to drive anything else (ok, I haven't driven a F1 car, but...). It  
just isn't a framework for everybody.
