  nah, we should change the voting method, just let each option choose a
glyph, and vote glyphs in order, like in:

  AEF|CD|BG

  which would be the same vote as:
  1322113

  Then each candidate could chose a glyph to represent him on the
ballot:
  ♥, ♫, ♀, …

  and I'm sure someone would also want to choose │ just for the fun.
Wouldn't be that really great ? Sadly there is no pony-glyph (sorry
martin, would a horse ♘ be OK though ?).
