IMHO examples and demos should be treated like normal code _BUT_ always
spinned of in a separate subpackage. This way you get proper packaging and
only people who really need them will have them on the filesystem.

I hate packages that dump examples and demos in a random place without any
real checks and have the main package swelled by this payload.
