It's not.  All ballot options have to have a majority above FD in order to
be eligible to win the ballot.  At least one more person has to vote
another option above FD for there to be a winner other than FD.

If all remaining TC members vote FD first, FD wins.  That would be the way
of indicating support for Ian's position that we should not hold
independent votes.

If all remaining TC members other than one vote FD first and the remaining
one votes something else first, that option wins, since our resolution
method fails later-no-harm spectacularly.  As Steve points out, all those
who have voted so far have voted in explicit disregard to this
possibility.  I did so on the grounds that I refuse to vote tactically at
that level, and it sounds like Steve is of a similar feeling.

FWIW, that's also why I want to vote the issues separately, since it
avoids a giant tactical morass.
