Modifiers: Server basics

I know that Modifiers are mentioned in the wiki. They are actually mentioned in a few places in different forms. There is no explanation of them that match up with the samples. The wiki says one thing and looking at the samples I am seeing SOME of what is mentioned. There really is no consistency between the wiki and most of the samples.

What I would love to see is a sample modifier that does nothing but read one channel from another object and write a value on another... It would be even better to show the working but empty modifier and then tell what you need to add instead of throwing up a bunch of code and picking through it.

Triggers of some kind would be great too. How do we find out that an item of type x was added to the scene? How can we tell that a channel value was changed outside of the modifier. (don't answer these here. This list was trying to guide possible documentation)
