Adding a "no" option would make things very complicated.  You see,
the "yes" option needs a supermajority.  The "no" option would not.
That would give us a ballot with mixed supermajority and normal majority
options.  Our voting system is currently not able to deal with that
in a sane way; we'd need to upgrade it somehow first.  Hmm, there's
a nice proposal floating around for doing exactly that, where did we
put it?
