The whole thing strikes me as extreme overkill, not to mention a
misunderstanding of what an example is supposed to be for.  If we're
going to insist that every example in the docs work when
copied-and-pasted into an empty database, then simple and to-the-point
examples will be history.  Instead of one-liners we'll have clutter.
