Interesting, that makes it harder to stop a delegate as compared to my
proposal. Not that thats bad. :)

So, those that spoke up yet mostly think Q instead of 2Q for normal GRs.
Could change my text, its at least 3 times the size as of now, yes.
Or we have 2 vote options, one for 2Q, one for Q. What makes more sense?
Guess changing mine, to avoid confusion/too many options?! (All just
dreaming ahead to a possible vote :) )
