I'm not sure how Simon Thompson feels, or other instructors using his or 
my book, but a downside of posting all of the solutions is that the 
problems cannot be assigned for homework.  I have many of the solutions 
to SOE problems, and could post them, but am wondering if it would be 
better to make them available only to instructors, or to those who might 
convince me that they are not reading the book for credit.  Or is that 
being too draconian?
