More often than not on the Activity page in the wiki there is contact
information for the Activity author(s). In this case, the author is
Brian Silverman.

(I see that Brian's email -- bs at media.mit.edu -- is not listed.
However, there is also a Trac component for the Turtleart Activity
(turtleart-activity) that can be used for reporting bugs and
suggesting new features.)

We do need better tools, however, as was already suggested, let's see
if we can add this feature -- we shouldn't have to depend on Brian,
except perhaps to approve our patches...

I've already begun, first by adding a sqrt command in the math section
of talogo.py. The next step is to expose it in the interface...
