Hmm, I think I missed the start of this thread, so maybe I'm missine
something, but from what I see, the key question seems to be: is this
intended a teaching tool or a reference?  If the former, then "getting
people to think" is an issue.  If the latter, then perhaps we can
assume that people can already think.

If it's trying to be both, then I suspect it will be, of necessity,
less than perfect in either role.
