[Tutor] variable from input?

That's an interesting one... 

You could have the variable contained in a separate module, and then
when the user enters the variable name, have another function write
that variable name throughout the other module, and then reimport the
other module, but that would only work if the variable were entirely
contained within that module.

But I've wondered that myself, but the implementation doesn't seem to
be worth the effort.
Once again, I could be entirely wrong.
