Submission + - Where to find beautiful code? 4

Obama writes: You often hear that the best way to learn how to code, is to read lots of other people's code. Having recently developed an interest in pure, unadorned C, I'm wondering where on the web I can find the most beautiful code to study. Mind you, I'm not interested formatting (K&R-versus-GNU, tabs-versus-spaces), but primarily in beautifully architected code (modular, self-documenting, elegant, terse, "obviously right"). Code so beautiful that its sheer transparency and apparent souplesse makes you swoon. The stuff that makes you a believer, the code that cannot be improved upon. Sure there's a lot of dog-ugly code out there in open-source land, but where to find the real paragons of beautiful code?
