*shrug* I don't care about quorums :)

We could trivially deal with quorums by saying: "The quorum is met
if Q ballots are received from distinct voters. If quorum is not met,
the default option wins." We already check that there's enough support
to bother considering anything by requiring seconds, we check that
it's popular by condorcet criteria, we check it's not objectionable by
supermajority requirements; the point of a quorum is to check that the
vote hasn't been done without anyone hearing about it...

I don't speak for anyone save myself. GPG signed mail preferred.
