I posted Part 1 on Barnacles (https://barnacl.es) in October (I believe) and a lot of people gave me good feedback but one of the things they said was that it was really hard to find a link to my site and that I was nuts for not talking more about my direct experiences with Tamboo since that was something they really wanted to know more about.
So in the later parts of the guide I do talk about some very specific Tamboo things and went away from the generalized example in the first part.
I honestly wasn't planning for it to spread to a larger audience like HN (this is a total surprise that's just flooring me right now!), so I never bothered to go back and change Part 1 to use a more Tamboo-ish example.
But I will definitely look to put something together that incorporates more of what you're talking about - thanks for the input!
