As with any code in the codebase, yeah, pre or post commit review seems
good & if they end up bitrotting/becoming less relevant/diverge
significantly from the tutorial content (written, video, whatever there is)
I think it's fine to delete them. Same as we'd do with tests. (I think
they're sort of like tests, really)
