8 I second this.
10 I have a good many packages which come with rather big examples, in addition
11 to ordinary documentation.
13 In fact, for some of the Java packages, and example may actually be an entire
14 (web)application, complete with documentation of its own.
16 If this gets ratified, I'd also recommend we try to refactor the existing
17 packages with 'doc' keywords, albeit slowly, since I know many of those
18 include examples when doc is enabled.
