Neat site!  We needed this for Python!

You do need to say what version of Python you are using.  Is this 3.0?

I added a problem, but it would have been easier with a little more help on
problem submission:

1. Description is in html.  Other fields are plain text.
2. Examples are in doctest format.  They are shown to the user after the
3. The Skeleton initializes the source code edit area.
4. Tests are in doctest format.  The ones in the section 'Tests'  are
displayed when the user runs the code.

You cannot save your problem edits without something in the Other Tests
section (and the Solution section, too?)

How are the Other Tests and the Solution sections used?

At least if you sign in, it would be nice to have a link to instructions,
and read-only access to the setup data for one or more of the problems.

Is there a way for the solution to be exposed to the user, at least after
they get a correct solution, for comparison?
