Where do we draw the line?  This will double the size of any example
that we comment -- and in the process, it will make the docs less
usable for everybody else.  I really can't imagine how we could do this
without significantly changing all the documentation.

(the amount of people who carefully reads an example decreases
exponentially as the size of the example increases)

... hmm, actually LSR might help here.  We could add a special
category "blind users"[1] which has all these extra comments[2].

[1] we'll might need to find a more politically correct term.
[2] this is a just suggestion, Valentin.  To start a discussion.  Don't
do it yet.
