      If you guys could have a look and throw me your 2 cents on this
document overall
      that would be awesome.

    Should the same document cover a few fundamentals first? For example,
    after reading it, I still have no idea how to create a simple form and
    do anything with it.

    Some example things I still don't know for certain:
    * Do I create the $form array myself, or is there something which
    initialises it for me?
    * How important is the array key "preview", and what does it relate to?
    * " $fields[$category][$field->name]" - it is not clear where this
    fits in with everything else (or any other nested part of a $form)
    * How do I put controls into a block?
    * Can I put controls into a table?

    I know I could answer all these questions myself by looking at
    examples, I'm just curious if they should be part of the same
