Where is this definition of a quorum from ?  The term `quorum' is not
explictly defined in the proposed constitution.

We want to avoid the situation where voting against a proposal can
cause the quorum to be reached more easily, because then you get
strange effects where people have to guess whether a proposal will
fail through lack of quoracy or through many `no' votes.
