Marty,
I loved point set topology when I was a sophomore. I was addicted to
it. Pure logical inference. I have always enjoyed teaching it and
think it is good for students in that it is very pure and is some
sense simple and beautiful. How much of it you teach is another
matter. I think a whole year of it is excessive. A semester of well
chosen topics would be my choice. I almost tortured a graduate
student once by insisting that she thoroughly understand Uhryson's
lemma. A lot of very careful stuff. Most students would prefer knot
theory.
