Is there a chance we could meet to discuss?  I'm not sure if I 
understand some of what you are planning to discard and its impact on 
the way I use LON-CAPA.

As for grading, I really like the ability to download data for 
individual problems, which I can then import into excel and the use it 
for assessing course learning outcomes in addition to maintaining grades.

One thing that would be nice is if one could show the points for 
individual problems, when the weighting is different.  That may be 
possible now, but I have to admit I haven't been able to do this.
