It's simpler than that: the homework states that the message is hardcoded
to show either josip's name or nickname. If the homework had asked to
more generally print a banner of a arbitrary message, that would be
harder, but his homework assignment is much easier because of the
hardcoded nature of it.
If I were to write this, my banner.py would be required to display:
***** * *
* * * *
* * *
on the screen.
So the parameterization is based on the person who is writing it. It's
very much a program in the same difficulty level as "Hello World", which
is why I'm trying very hard not to say more about it.
