intro(2) on any BSD distribution is a good example of what an intro(x) manpage 
should look like.  But they are far from tutorials on how to write UNIX code.

Not anyone who would consider writing it as a manpage.  I have already said I 
would edit a guide together.  There's enough good material out there that we 
don't need to write (much) if we can consolidate the existing works.

Certainly things will need an update, but that's a relatively small delta 
against the existing works (again, if we can use them).
