How do you define pleasing?

Perl's CPAN is far more useful than pretty much any other 
language/library, so I'm not sure we can show good examples, without 
writing examples for most of CPAN.

For the Boost library (aka C++), how do you show that compile-time 
compilation is taking place?

And if you like the Java's acronym soup, then a single 80x25 isn't going 
to cut it...

I'm somewhat of a fan of the GNU Hello world example... ;)
