	As Jeroen said it is a little bit hard to change devotee behaviour.
Anyway, I believe that is possible to collect non-DD-packagers votes signed
by their sponsors and instead of automatically parse it with devotee, use
devotee "by hand" to create tally sheet and a separate results file.

	Probably some "hack" is needed in the sense of avoid votes being
overlapped because of the same signature. And we also need to point out
who is the voter, instead of showing only the DD.

	I don't know if it is a good idea to run it in a more informal
way, which means, get the ballots signed by DDs, don't parse it with
devotee, parse with some "devotee-changed" or another script to prepare
a "special" tally and finally using devotee to just prepare the Schwartz
Set and the graphics. Could be an "extra" information to the poll.

	I did a similar approach for a Debian User Group, votes were
made via web, the scripts builds a tally sheet and then I use devotee
to prepare the results.

	Hope it helps,
