I know I didn't really begin to grok Drupal until I began developing modules.  
It still took me a few mods before I had a good understanding of what I was 
doing. :-)  While there are tutorials in the handbooks, such as node_example, 
frankly none of them go far enough or deep enough.  Really good deep but 
clear multi-pass tutorials are incredibly useful, but Drupal isn't there, 

I believe I've the writing skills to do such a writeup, but I don't know that 
I truly grok Drupal well enough to get it right.  My day job is also not 
Drupal related, sadly, so I don't have much time to devote to it. :-(  At 
some point I want to give it a shot, though.  I'll probably be trolling 
#Drupal when I do so to make sure I'm not saying something incredibly stupid.

"If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of 
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an idea, 
which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to 
himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession 
of every one, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it."  -- Thomas
