Jep, the right balance between simplicity and complexity is not found yet in
the tutorials.
Maybe because ppl still think that increasing the complexity will result in
a complicated tutorial. In fact, that's not true: It's rather a question of
the writers skills in making explanations if the tutorial is easy to
understand or not.
