Import format for a Blackboard Survey

Questions with answers appear on a single line, delimited by tab characters. In a survey, answers are not designated as correct or incorrect, but an empty set of quotes must be present where such a designation would appear in a quiz.

See BbSurveyImport for how to use such a file.
