I think this is a great idea, but it's not the kind of change I like to
make to the Debian bsd-games package. So hopefully you can apply it.

Hi everyone,

I've been learning the US presidents by heart using quiz. However, I
have problems with the first names because quiz is satisfied if one
enters just their lastnames. With this patch, quiz gives out the whole
answer if the user answered correctly, this means in the case of the
presidents that the program is going to tell me the whole name even if I
only know the last name.

As this is the first patch I ever wrote, please apologize any
imperfection and tell me about it :-)

Best wishes,
Ulf Schaper
