My experience has been that this quickly leads to non-compiling
examples, which leads to user frustration.

For my other projects, I've decided that rather than having to do
massive fixes when someone reports that the examples are not building,
I'll include the examples in my daily builds where I'll quickly discover
that they aren't working -- and then I can either fix the problem or
back out the patch that broke the build.

But I don't feel strongly about it.
