Wasn't sure where to put this. 

The trend of using webmaps in
var mapDeferred = arcgisUtils.createMap("62702544d70648e593bc05d65180fd64", "map");


Is really frustrating as a developer. It hides so much code.

For example:
I looked at the LayerSwipe sample.  Looks cool, I wonder what the overlay layers are and how to specify them.  Open source code.

Oh.. its a webmap, cant see anything.

Oh well, can't use sample.

Is there anyway, that at least in the samples, everything can be manually defined?
