IIRC the adoption of Condorcet voting predates that web site; your
best bet would be to go through the mailing list archives and find the
discussions that led to the constitution (which predate my involvement
in the project, IIRC).

As for the system's complexity, at least from the voter's standpoint,
if voters are incapable of rank-ordering their own preferences I have
to wonder how they manage to get along in life... :-)
