Sorry, but the servlet teachpacks haven't worked since v350. This
is mostly my mistake for not maintaining them properly.

If you are interested in hooking 15 year olds, you may have more
fun doing it via the world.ss teachpacks. We have an experiment
running in MA that gets 10 year olds to write (simple) space invader
