this might be a stupid question, but if the cookbook as a whole is
CC-BY (not SA) wouldnt that make the code examples "unfree", or would
they be under a MIT style licence? i understand that CC-BY only means i
would not be allowed to take snippet from the cookbook and include them
in my own tutorial/projects.

im aware this might be a more theoretical question of course as most
code examples would be rather trivial or copied from other sources
