Then again, plain condorcet doesn't resolve the case where more than
one option is in the schwartz set.

Then again, that's not what
http://www.mathematik.uni-kl.de/~wwwstoch/voss/comp/quorum.html is
talking about.

However, we all know that sequential dropping (of weakest defeats)
ultimately results in all but one option being dropped from the winning

Markus Schulze's example (see above url) shows a case where sequential
dropping, without any quorum rules whatsoever, produces exactly the kind
of behavior you object to on your page under the subtitle "One more vote
makes a difference".

[And, no, I'm not prepared to discuss the sitation in any more depth,
at this time.]
