Congrats, Alexandre.  I wish you the best of fortune on it.

Alan provided a great overview of how the FITB questions are asked and, he's
right, it will be explicit on how whether the question wants a full path,
arguments, etc.

Also, because we have to evaluate the answers in the FITB and need to deal
with translation issues, the answers will always be a non-english term.  In
the case of numbers, we do accept four (if that's the answer) but we're
really looking for the number 4.
