One limitation of Jeroen's polls where that they where not anonymous. This may
be a choice we can make, but i still think they have more value if they are
anonymous, as any kind of pressure and strategic choices can be made if they
are open, not that this would be the case for us, us being all nice folk and
everyone, but everyone can read those public poll information, and some of
those may be less nice :)

I strongly vote for this idea in any case.
