Indeed but that is not always a blessing: Not knowing what I am doing, I 
often bumble onto what turns out later to be the wrong way to do the thing.

One very nice thing about Talbot is that he is extremely helpful. The 
original probsoln didn't randomize the order of the questions. I tried 
to do it myself and of course never made it. I then wrote to him and a 
few days later he sent me a new version which had it.

(I wish Carstein Heinz would do the same and expand polynom and include 
division in //ascending// powers—as necessary to approximate a rational 
function near a finite point.)
