there's only one tutorial there because the site was made by the author

you mean a clone in the same way it happens when someone reads the  
helpfile of any library/object and does exactly what's described in the  
helpfile, thus limiting the way he thinks? what would be the difference

are quite happy making/being clones, you can't force them to be "free"  
(whatever that is).
