Tim, I just fear that people don't know tests/manual/ and will never
go in there to find useful stuff like popupMatrix.html. Now that we
have a nice example index page, that page could provide a link to the
acceptance tests. But hmm... most propably people won't understand why
there's two locations with examples.
