Stubs introduction needs more diagrams


In the "Better Unit Testing with Microsoft Fakes", chapter 2, Stubs, there should be diagrams illustrating the idea of interface / component isolation like the following Shims introduction has with figures 6 and 7. i.e. a diagram showing a component under test with Stubs talking to Stubs instead of downstream dependencies like database/service/... shown in figure 5. Figure 5 illustrates how the system isolates components but not the use of that isolation (again, by testing with stubs instead of actual dependencies).

Actually, figure 6 is a simplified diagram for this, and maybe should be moved into the stubs introduction as it illustrates stubs.

Thanks for the feedback. I've included a reference to this figure from the stubs section in the next refresh we are working on.
