I'd (1) have to be pretty sure they were serious, and (2) that I really wanted 
that particular job.  Most of all, in my flavor of paranoia, I'd have to be 
sure they weren't just trying to get some free development out of me without 

I'd probably ask them to produce their solution as soon as I handed mine in, 
to be sure that the foregoing wasn't happening.  I had a PalmOS development 
company try to pull that on me once.
