why not show them pduino, list-abs, rtc-lib, rradical from the
beginning? to stick with the [list prepend]-[route] vs. [demux] example:
the problem here is, that [demux] is an external, which doesn't give you
an idea, how things could be done otherwise (without specialized
objects). if [demux] would be substituted by an abstraction made of
[list prepend]-[route], you could have an insight, how things are done.
in other words, i think, there is no drawback in using abstractions from
the beginning, but maybe there is one with externals.
