Sure, I'd be happy to. (And if winds up being too complicated, then
that's certainly OK; just keep me in check!)

If I'm reading right then I think you're thinking of like a "headword"
example above each section in the manual? So there would be 1 fancy
example for 8.1.1, another fancy example for 8.1.2, and a third for
8.1.3, and so on?

Cool. I can throw some time at that :-) Graham, if you have a set of
sections in mind that you'd like me to try first, just let me know.
Otherwise, I'll just pick a couple of my favorite sections and start
with those for you to critique.
