I agree with you, but from my experience and from experience of people I
have introduced to openScad, the "tutorial" about how to draw cubes,
cylinders and spheres and how to translate/rotate, takes the first 15
minutes of anyone proficient with at least one programming language. After
the first 15 minutes this kind of user is basically helpless on how to
manage a design slightly more complex than a few cubes and a cylinder.

If the final target of this effort is to fill gaps in documentation, those
are the topics not yet covered (in my opinion), whichever the way (tutorial
or how-tos).
