those are difficult to insert the code found in the tutorials into.
also, most of the stuff that goes on in those code chunks are available in tutorials here. and the code in here is prettier. and easier to tweak, if you know what you are doing. and if you don't know what you are doing, it makes it easier for the people who do to be able to add it to your layer(s).
so... how about it? dropping support for people who get those?
i'm going to be out for the day. so... let me know what you all think.
