Let me apply this to my evil testcase. :-)
A defeats B by 38 to 1
A defeats D by 19 to 0
B defeats D by 20 to 19.
On the A->B->D defeat path, A defeats D with 20 positive votes at the
weakest link, which makes quorum, and A wins.
Yep, this fixes the perverse result I was talking about in another
thread (where Manoj's proposal causes B to win). Am I correct, Markus?
