Yeah, I think that's approximately what you get right now if you read
tutorial.txt followed by core-tutorial.txt, though the two currently may
not really work together well as sequels.

So I'm inclined to start by revising the two to make them read well as
sequels, then maybe moving some of core-tutorial.txt into the earlier
tutorial.txt.  By the time we're done the two might end up being one
document.  Or they might still be two, but with the split being more
clearly beginning/advanced instead of high-level/low-level.

Feedback from people who'd actually worked through the two would
obviously be useful.
