But IMO the tutorial doesn't really demonstrate *why* the component
architecture is a Good Thing.  If you're not familiar with the design
patterns used, then I suspect it looks overly verbose and fairly
opaque.  If you are familiar with GoF or suchlike, then you'll drool.  

I've got to go home now, but here's my very personal take on why the
Component Architecture is Cool: I'd say its biggest promises are
flexible, maintainable code (no subclassing of BoboFooMixin and
StupidSimpleFace); interoperable Products; and whole new vistas for
administration tools and interfaces.  But that's quite a personal take.
