I only updated the C source code.  The actual HTML tutorial (which is
still out of date) spans several pages of explanations of what the
source actually does.  Making it a separate item and calling it an
updated version would be a bit of an overstatement at this stage,
IMHO.  Ideally, it would be great to update the explanations as well,
but I don't have the resources to do that right now.

Yes, I do.  Since it's on Github, other people will be able to
contribute as well.
