I've thought before about this issue. Number of foils seems like a 
variable that can make or break the utility of a question in the mind 
of the instructor. So an otherwise perfectly good question might not be 
useful simply due to having too few or too many foils. We might enhance 
the value of the problems we all write if the other users could make 
their own decisions about how many foils to show. Maybe I'll submit an 
enhancement bug. Anybody else agree?
