Well.. we probably need to get Guy and/or Klee's votes before things are

I've not yet expressed a preference. I think I've read the relevant

expressed a concern that I wasn't diplomatic enough. Since I don't
feel competent to assess my personality flaws, and since there was
no immediate need for me to express a preference I elected not to.

speak up before too long.
