This one's still in development:

I could not find any way to set up the targets using random crates.

For Comparison Sort Task v0 (tyvumih): hecodup.  It is a bit ... weird.  I wanted to use the existing pieces.

Actually, I had intended this to be the best solution (but since this is v0 I was too lazy to use some method of forcing you to do it this way)

Swimming up stream solution:

Excellent job!  This was fun, I like the idea of taking away the traditional ways of moving one way or the other- opens up a lot of ideas for new levels!

This one is somewhat more difficult than the others because there's no trick I know of that makes it trivial. zykidib

I have not found a solution yet but I'm sure it exists.

It's impossible only because of the randomity of the available crate. If the available crate is even and the required one is odd, you will never get an odd one using any calculations.
So instead of putting a random, I would put a "1".
For the rest, the puzzle looks really interresting and I already have a good idea how to solve it (with the "1"). I simply have to manage well the space.

The easiest way around that would be to stick a copier under the random crate.
