Many thanks for your reply, Wolfgang (also in the other thread, but I
don't reply there, since I have nothing more to add at the moment). I
then leave the idea of having the blocks processed "where they are
written".

For now, I solve this by adding labels on all exercises, and refer to
them in the answers. It works, but my fantasy for naming the labels
are soon reaching the limit... :)

Best regards, Mikael
