A Cook Book is good but relies on people specifically working on it. I think
most of the package authors submit their packages because they themselves
need the modules in his real world.

I think package authors adding examples in the Descriptions section is a
good start when they submit their packages. You do want to facilitate people
understanding and using your modules, right?

Maybe later on we can add an Example section to Description, Synopsis, and
Documentation sections produced by Haddock.

Also, having a section for comments is helpful. This is the case especially
when there are several similar packages coexisting, comments can help people
choose which one to use.
