See, this is where I disagree.  I don't think the code in the examples/
dir should be automatically extracted from anywhere; I think the code in
the book should reflect (mimic, even plagarize) the code in examples/, but
from a development viewpoint, the code in examples will be susceptible to
bug fixes, tweaks, etc that, IMO, need not be mirrored in the cookbook
"after press".  Updated in the BPC, 2nd edition, sure (where applicable),
but one cookie at a time.
