Shouldn't we list all the alternative solutions down as well?

I'm new to this site and already became a fan of it within a few minutes. I have a few thoughts I would like to share.

Whenever we read the worked solution, we could only see one answer from a particular user. And I've got to admit, their answers are always very elegant. But there are usually other solutions posted by other users as well. I would like to suggest to the staffs that users should be able to browse through all the alternative solutions. We could also learn something from their solutions as well. I propose that the submitted worked solutions should be arranged from good to best (or vice versa).

Any thoughts on this?

For example:

For the solutions given below, Repeated Squaring and Binomial Theorem are equally elegant in my opinion.
