I know, it's a state machine, the states are questions and the
given answer leads to a new state, and so on, and when you're
done (state with no outgoing arrows), then that's state isn't
a question but an answer to the original question.

Such systems are all over the net, Image Google "Do I have
ME/CFS (PEM)?" for example for some charts, but to be safe,
promise me to answer NO at the very first question!
