        They only need to do so to prevent it from being on the current
 ballot.  I think it would be a pity of any of the 6 options is
 withdrawn, since any of them could lend us relief from the current mess
 wrt Lenny release.

        As to future votes, anyone may propose a failed option on any
 vote for a fresh look anytime they so desire.
