1) make a new world with this seed: Krosis (yes, I got it from Skyrim)
2) find the village. There are saplings in the smith's chest.
3) create your tools (you can break wood from the shack, just make sure you fix it later)
4) protect the village (this should be on hard difficulty).
1) No mods, even though none are out for this version yet (to my knowledge).
2) You must at least keep the librarian (dressed in white) alive.
3) You cannot change difficulty to do a mob swipe.
4) You cannot block the doors once they enter at night.
5) You cannot make a ditch/wall to encase the village.
I will be adding rules as we go along.
A bit more of a challenge is what you want?
1) Follow the five rules above,lest instructed otherwise below.
2) You must play on Hardcore mode.
3) You are allowed only two logs from the cabin. Any more will be considered cheating.
4) Your house can only be of wooden planks and cobblestone. It must look similar to the village houses.
5) Herding the villagers is counted as cheating.
6) No beds.
Kudos to criticalminer for giving me the idea. Hardcore mode was a smart idea, bro!
Tell me how it goes!
UPDATE: The seed still works for 12w08a, it's just that there is a cave under the village. It makes it easier because spawn rates decrease above ground. To avoid people resorting to this, I'm going to post a download link for the original world.

Day One: Found the village. Went off into the jungle and got 30+ wood. Made stone tools, weapons, etc. Securely established a house, into the side of a tiny hill beside the library. Killed some pigs, got some pork. Looted the Smith's place, got iron pants, 5 saplings, and 1 loaf of bread. Planted the 5 saplings outside my house. Uh-oh, night approaches.
Night One: Zombies, spiders, and creepers! (oh my!) they're everywhere! Looted a iron sword off a zombie (oh yeah!) almost died, half a heart. (Yes, I switched the difficulty once, because I was on half a heart and two creepers walked inside a little defense post I was in and almost killed me.) It's day time now.
Day Two: Made a bow, and I have 5 arrows. Made some swords, killed pigs and cooked 11 pork chops, I'm ready for this next night. COME AT ME BRO.
Night Three: I died when morning was coming up. Argh, All my swords broke, didn't notice my health. kfjsdklfjasf.

I recommend some rules for people who want a real super challenge.
-no building dirt/ sand houses. Only wood and stone
-your houses must always have an opening, or have a wooden door. No blocking out enemies
-i recommend no looting villagers' houses. Only take from the chest, but you can't use the wood. Also no blocking in the villagers.
-i recommend you can only dig sand/ dirt with a shovel (except clay)
-i recommend once you get your first wood, you must make an axe. After, you can only gather wood with the axe.
-no sleeping through the night!
-also, play on hardcore! I'll try again with these settings, and record my progress!
EDIT: Ok, on my second try I survived the first night. The second night, I was forced back into the library, and eventually we got surrounded and died. I was level 8. I'll try to upload the video.
One mroe thing I figured out. It is crazy difficult, because there are no caves (12w07b problem). So less hostile mobs spawn underground; more above ground!

Day 1: I arrived on the small island, and found myself in the midst of a herd of pigs. After killing the pigs, I headed onward, until I found a small village with a few sheep. After killing and skinning the sheep, I took some of the villages farm supplies, for my own personal use. I headed towards the town blacksmith, but noticed that a pig was following me. I grew afraid since I thought it was possessed or something, but then I remembered that they like to eat wheat, which I still hadn't returned to my bag. Satisfied, I killed the pig, and took its meat. I then entered the blacksmith's house. He was away, so I took all of his stuff, which included a few saplings, which I planted. I needed some burning material in order to cook all of the pork. So I took several logs off of neighboring houses and began burning them in my new furnaces (which used to be the blacksmith�s) Night came on and I needed to prepare, so I crafted myself a sword and got ready. As soon as it got dark zombies swarmed the village. I secured my house (the blacksmith�s old house) and went out to battle. I managed to survive the night.
Day 2: Two people died last night, the butcher and the blacksmith. The butcher was slain by zombies, but the blacksmith suffered a more unusual death. From the look of it, he was stabbed fourteen times with a wooden sword and then shoved into the furnace. We are all puzzled by this I�m sure, since no monsters carrying swords entered the village last night. I searched for coal, but ended up finding iron, which I smelted with my last few logs. I discovered that the trees had grown, so I harvested them. I took all the resources I had found, and used them all on improvements to my house, and made it fully zombie-proof (with an iron door)
I slept through the night, and one villager died.
Day 3: I FINALLY FOUND COAL!!! I also found some iron, which I am going to use to give the library a zombie proof door. I also have quite a large patch of trees. Unfortunately, however, I have been forced to live off of wheat, since there are no more pigs on the island. I almost got suffocated in sandslide just moments ago, but luckily a villager came to my aid. Unfortunately however, he was stabbed by a very sharp sword-like stick exactly in the heart and his body was lost in the sand. that night, I was doing quite well until some form of green monstrousity blew up my house. I now shall move on to building a new one.
Day 4: When I woke up, my house was surrounded by creepers. While running backwards, I fell into the well, and the creepers followed, I was blown up and now sleep with the fishies.
