ActiveState has stopped accepting new recipes on their website, and migrated all current recipes to a Github repo.  I have seen no official announcement of a shutdown date for the code.activestate.com website, but it's future has to be in question considering the migration.

I propose we go through the docs for all the recipes, and either rescue them to a section of the docs (perhaps to a new "Code Examples" section), incorporate the recipes into the doc pages where appropriate, or excise them entirely.

Another option would be to update the links to the GitHub repo, but I am less enthusiastic about that option - GitHub repos come and go, and mutate structure easily.  I don't think it would be a good idea to deep link into a repository not controlled by the Python project.

It would stink to have a bunch of suddenly dead links in the docs.
