 The ideal captcha would not be visual at all.  For example, on another
 site I am involved with, which is not quite online yet, we are talking
 about implementing tseveral levels of captcha such as:

 - a math captcha (you will be asked to solve a simple math problem)
 - a word captcha (fill in the missing letters of a word)
 - a phrase captcha (complete the phrase)

Could something like one or more of these be possible?
