Hmm, I do admit that the snippets seem to be used everywhere, and it lacks
originality, but what is the point in re-inventing the wheel?  Sure you
learn more indepth C coding styles, but most call it a waste of time =).
I learned by taking the snippets and base code and just tinkering with it.
Such things as spells, skills, and specprocs are great to learn off of.
