fully agree, maybe a few questions to check their knowledge of C would
be nice before accepting them, that should be done realtime (IRC) to make
cheating a little harder
some questions about things like !!x, big/little endian, various pointers to

difference of ++i vs. i++, differnt precission of float vs. double, security
issues about checkung input, malloc(x*y) integer overflows, ...
ability to work with diff/patch/svn, ...
