Working at a university that does not recognize the AP
CS exams, I certainly agree with you about the exam.
If *all* universities had the guts to take the same position,
then the exam would quietly die away.

What is sad is not that the exam got cancelled.  It is that
as a result the subject -- which as we all know is far more
rich, interesting, etc. than the exam -- will invariably get
dragged down a little along with the lost exam.

It's the knock-on effects that bother Matthias and me.  The
exam itself, we toast its demise.
