A cookbook would be a fantastic thing, especially if we got a little
gang together to write it and spread the workload.  In the meantime,
the wiki continues to be a good place to keep little articles, and I
hope to revive the snippets/recipes site soon.

You don't need a 'standard' library[1], yes, but you do need to show
how to use library code. As Chris says, how to work with a protocol is
a natural topic for a cookbook, but nasty without the right library.

[1] 'standard' is not the right word, because will not
endorse it. And life is too short for yet another ISO committee ;)
