Given that my philosophy is not to hassle maintainers for anything not
directly related to code (and that in fact I tend to get pissy when I
hear about anyone hassling maintainers for any non-code reason), yes,
it is fairly far out of line with what I had in mind.

A plethora of demos (one per module?) that no one watches doesn't
really do anyone any good; you need a small number (really, IMHO, one
good/longish one, potentially a couple 'learn more...' for
complex/important issues) of videos, done with the same style, tone,
pacing, etc., and such throughout. That probably means a few core
volunteers who step up to do it, after figuring out what is important
and scripting it out.

OTOH, in the more-scattered-but-JFDI approach, there is already
someone attempting to do a module-by-module approach here:
