Hi Lars,

As far as I know, this is really only important for the auto-enrollment
features.  For example, a lasers class might have a number in physics like
phgn392, as well as one in engineering like eggn392.  Regardless of which of
these classes the student registers for, it is the same class that meets at the
same time with the same instructor, etc.

Yup.  So we have three separate lecture sections, and 6 separate labs, so I
actually create 18 sections for my course.  This allows the lecturer for
lecture #1 to interact with only his or her students via the <feedback>
mechanisms, etc.

All sections still get the same homework, but the due dates can be different by
