You are supposed to learn programming by evaluating some other
guy's code?

Also you write stuff like

  These `find-*-noselect' functions work quite well but are
  not 100% reliable - for example, if an elisp file has
  several definitions for the same function, variable, or
  face, the `find-*-noselect's don't know which ones were
  executed, neither which one was executed last, overriding
  the other ones... and it may return the position of a defun,
  defvar, or defface that is not the "active" one.

at a time when you haven't mention even the most basic
building blocks of the language, e.g. `if', `when', `unless',
`cond' ...

That page is rather some kind of interactive index for people
who are already programmers, I'd say. Maybe do the first Elisp
multimedia CD-ROM instead?
