      Description

      In the database, there is a column question_multichoice.layout. It has been there from the very start (revision 1.1 of mod/quiz/db/mysql.sql!)

      It has never been used, but apparently it was intended for storing the option of whether to lay the question out horizontally or vertically. Perhaps one day we should implement this feature!
