I'm not sure that that's a good evaluation.  If someone ranks one
candidate above NOTA, and another below, that means that he thinks the
first is acceptable as DPL, and the second is not, so I don't think that
should count as being clones.

Another measure of "clones" would be to count the ballots that ranked
two candidates equally, but that might give numbers that are too small
to be meaningful at all.

Interesting analysis, Anthony.
