"Weak König's Lemma over RCA_0"

Since the addition of Konig's Lemma to RCA_0 presented last time proved to be too strong, we will next investigate the addition of Weak Konig's Lemma to RCA_0. To show that this will have strength strictly between RCA_0 and ACA_0, we will spend some time discussing the PA degrees, including an important application of the Low Basis Theorem.
