Hi Chris,

I wonder what is your opinion, should we bump these tutorials with
every version? And, is the find/replace of the commands the best way
to do this?

I feel like this topic comes up now and again. Maintaining these
examples is a little fragile.

@Ida: Thanks for the patches, now we'll need to determine if we want
to bump these examples like this, and whether we should consider a
better way to maintain this stuff in the future.
