I wasn't aware of the difference until you pointed it out. I will try to
remember to keep a constant format and leave the numbers out (I geuss there are
enough numbers in a solution already).

I don't think so, since I will try to slowly increase the difficulty of the
tsume problems. This means the three movers will gradually become five-movers,
the five-movers seven-movers and the seven-movers will become nine-movers. Since
I don't want to spoil the surprise (and since you don't know the actual number
of moves to mate in an actual game) I will not warn you of these changes in
advance.
