I would be willing to consider this lower priority since it is a one
package at a time problem.

I was really more concerned with examples that show how to use something
after it is installed. Say for a matrix math library, we have a simple test
that uses one or two operations. Just enough to get a user started and
sanity check a package is installed.

Agreed. Especially since we don't have the problem scoped or good solutions
for all the issues ourselves.
