followed by groups of things like


If probsoln uses regular counters, I would think they would be  
accessible via various other commands for counters. The various  
commands for counters won't really care if the counters keep being  
changed, just whether the counters are present and what values they

So, how about

\setcounter{seedNumber}{123} % 123 would be whatever seed number  
you've chosen
\arabic{seedNumber} % to print the seed number
\PSNrandseed{\value{seedNumber}} % to use the seed number as you were  

Would that do what you want?

I have to run, but I'll think on #2. #3 and #4 are beyond me. Hope  
that helps.
