I realize this isn't the place for introductions but hi I'm new here. I'm looking at ants.py trying to figure out how everything fits together, and it strikes me that it's a bit clumsily written and confusing. It's included in the starter package, so according to the FAQs on the contest site I should be able to rewrite it. Is this correct? I'd definitely like to rewrite so it's less confusing, at least for myself.

Hi.

Totally. Pretty much everyone modifies the starter kit code, at least for Python. The only requirement is that your bot use the correct input/output protocol.

Thanks. I was confused about that one file as it's also in the tools package.

Upon further inspection, those are not the same files. Might I recommend a name change of one of them in order to avoid confusion? Also keeping track of what imports what would also be easier.
