As I attempted to explain in my reply to Raul Miller, that you may
disagree with the fanciful meditations which let me to start thinking
about this issue isn't really germane to the problem I raised.

As I said to Raul:

	[...] if the technique is consistently used, and people don't
	adapt their voting practices to compensate for it, that it could
	result in zero progress in an infinite number of steps,
	regardless of the actual collective desired pace of progress.
