Yeah, after thinking about that one for a bit, I realized I was wrong.

So does this mean that the edits go on a separate ballot from his other
proposal?  If so, what does that mean if something other than exactly
this these two proposals win on one or the other of the ballots?

Note that my most recent proposal works fine with either of Andrew's
proposals.  So from my point of view it would make a lot of sense for
all three to appear on the same ballot.  [And, since Andrew hasn't been
willing to state what problems he's trying to solve, it may very well
be that this is fine from Andrew's point of view as well.]
