Maybe I'm just too much of a programmer. It seems to me that if we
were to invent a 3:2 supermajority for something (not an unreasonable
suggestion) - or someone else who wanted to use our appendix A were to
do so - then it would be good to be able to do so.
An alternative way to finesse this is to `interpret' the ratio M:N to
be equal to the real number M/N, as some of use learned in primary
school, but I'm not sure that's very clear.
