why not just take a copy of devotee, run it from a different address,
and hack it so that it accepts any validly signed vote as long as the
signing key is in one of the GPG public key servers.

that lets anyone vote in a poll. it also lets "clever" people with more
than one key vote more than once....but so what, it's only an informal

oh, and toss out anything to do with quorums (quick hack - make quorum
always equal to 1).


ps: some polls should be for DDs only (e.g. gauging DD opinions), and
some should be open (e.g. gauging user opinions). depends on the poll.
