Robby, thank you for clarifying my remark.  It is sad that as a  
community we can't even agree on such a fundamental thing.  I should  
have gone with my gut feeling and asked for the value of (+ 1 2), but  
I decided to make it more interesting and asked a (reworded) question  
out of the Little Schemer.  "Le mieux est l'ennemi du bien."

Let me also take a moment to say:

You guys have got to be kidding!  The Scheme workshop's future is at  
stake and the steering committee is asking for your feedback to help  
bring the community together and all you can talk about is how ill  
conceived the skill testing question was.  Honestly, this is shameful  
behavior.  How about a discussion on the Scheme workshop itself?  Does  
anyone really care?

Good night.
