In a "free software" sense, they can get the sources from the

ok, I'm willing to go as far as adding a single "View sources"
link at the bottom of the page, which takes people to a
Snippets->Examples page.  Of course, that would require adding the
Examples to LSR (or at least new/), requiring yet more build
hackery, and introducing more black magic that Jonathan and I
won't understand.

... you know, I *really* think that the examples should be left
alone.  We don't want newbies looking at the source, because it'll
only confuse and scare them.  They complicate the build process
even more.  Everything about this is screaming "not worth the
effort" to me.

Wow, you're right.  Some files in input/ are included, others
aren't.  Some dirs in input/mutopia/ are included, others aren't.
What a maoing mess!

Good point.  I'll think about this.
