i have installed your rather nice looking bundle in the CTAN directory
info/challenges/AroBend (and in parallel moved Mike's original stuff to
info/challenges/aro-bend, though the old directory name for aro-bend
remains available for the time being).

i've also catalogued the new package.  thanks for the upload.

users may view the (meagre) catalogue entry at
or browse the package directory at
