Very clever! This would have worked. This method would have made it
easy to determine all of the tests in the suite.


Now the question is, can you think of a way for us to plug it? The
only sure way I can think of is to not show error messages, but this
would make it harder for contestants to debug their entries. Can you
think of any other way?
