If this were put to the TC, I can't see any way that this would be anything
more than a poll of the personal preferences of the members of the TC.  If
someone who's in a position to make this decision decides they'd like to
delegate the decision to the TC, then ok, I suppose we can decide it that
way; but otherwise I don't see any reason that a vote of the TC is a better
way to decide this than any other arbitrary method...
