These are valuable suggestions - and underline the need for a better

I will have some more time over the weekend to add a more detailled
documentation. Afaik Dirk is improving the wording of the questions:
Originally, we were concerned with framing effects so that is why the
wording has been rather monotonous. For now, I think it's important to
make this as much fun as possible, so we shouldn't worry too much
about this.

Also, we should keep in mind that we always have a batch of questions
and dimensions left (also to cover green preferences like environment)
- in the long-run we would need to incorporate this too. i will update
the issues in bitbucket.

I also wanted to work on the look and feel of /result.

Anyway, I'm very confident about this program - I'm working myself
through the Python book atm so I will hopefully be able to join in
some serious coding soon.


PS: Rufus: I have just pulled the recent version - I wonder why I get
an error once I am on /quiz/2. The output is:

Please let me know if there is some other *.py I need to init.
