Assuming that you already opened the problem up to your class:

> How deep changes can be made in a running course? For example, what
> changes can i make in a problem? Can I add parts to a problem? 

If the problem was already in parts, adding a part is ok.  If it isn't 
in parts, then you'd be introducing a part id to the first answer that 
was previously just wrapped in the <problem> tag.  If it's allowed, I 
would think that you could call the original problem <part id="0"> and 
it would work.  Anyone know if this is allowed?

You could, but the students who answered the problem would have to redo 
the problem because data is stored based on the part id.  The default id 
  of problem with no parts is 0.
