I'm worried about the many alternative choices in this vote. Suppose 4:1
voters agree that the new social contract should be delayed so that
sarge can be released, but some think that it should be september, 1st,
some that sarge could take longer so do it after the release, some want
sarge released with a special notice saying the social contract changes
are ignored for this release etc. and none of the choices will get a 3:1
majority. That way sarge will not be released before 2005 whereas 4:1
people wanted it to.
Am I seeing things wrongly? I certainly hope so.
