Chicken and the Egg
2002-11-19 C. Garrett Goebel

Goal: Write a script which will mutate and self-replicate

o  script's last expression must be a scalar string containing
   a generated script

o  generated script must do likewise

o  no generated script may match* an ancestor

o  each script must be able to be evaluated without exception

*  A valid match may be anything from a straight string
   comparison to a signature detection heuristic

Prize: The Camel will be passed to writer of the submission which:

o  replicates the most in a given time period (5 minutes)
o  avoids signature detection
o  most ingenious mutability
