In these lines, the homework policy could be extended to contain
great solutions to all typical homework tasks. Teachers could
build on that by instructing students to study and use such solutions to
solve other tasks. Bonus could be given to students who could find
even better solutions than those in the page, maybe with exponencial
prizes like Knuth's checks :)
