It is used in the storage of the data when a studetn interacts with
This way if you need to move thigns around, (Swithc the order of two
resposne or 2 parts) or otehrwise change a problem, the association
between the data and the problem will stay.

starts at 11, increments by 1, assigns in order that id requiring tags
occur in the file.

- stylistic (you don't like ours, you want to give things pretty
- programmatic (you are going to use &EXT() and need to know what the id
is for a part or response)
- you are mucking with a problem and want to make sure that users
don't loose info.

id 0 is the <problem>
0_11 is likely the response with id 11, inside of a <problem>

as well as <import>
