Thanks Gary.  It's pretty cool to see everything side by side.  Here
is the Fudge section:
(pull request sent)

fwiw, I'm not a huge fan of abstract code examples using some_object,
some_method, some_value, etc.  I much prefer examples that represent
realistic situations, even if they are slightly contrived -- it's so
much easier on my brain!  This was a major requirement for me when I
wrote fudge's own documentation --
http://farmdev.com/projects/fudge/using-fudge.html -- and I encourage
all developers to think up realistic situations when writing code

That said, I like mocking the open function as a context manager,
that's something one might do in real life so it will make sense to a
developer who is considering a mock library.
