Hi Lars,

I expect an valid problem constructed today should work well in the
future, it just will allow a greater latitude in what the student is
allowed to input.

Several other universities have found it sufficient.

I expect there will be a newer better interface to accept wider array
of formula response styles and types.

I also fully expect the current mechanism to continue to work

As for implied mulitplication, it is a bad idea to accept it as it is
an unclear mechanism, as to whether r not MuPad supports it in some, I
don't know.
