Create a separate repository to hold more complex examples, e.g. those based on published papers.
Could have an area for archiving the actual driver files used in the analyses along with a note of the Laura++ version used in the analysis. Then could also have an area where versions that work with the current software can reside - this can use the CMake infrastructure to build against the Laura++ library.
Review if some of the current examples could move into this package.
Consider utilising this set of examples for (automated) checks of the main Laura++ code.
