For me, this is orthogonal.  I want both 1 and 3 to be accepted, and 2
to be rejected.  However, if I could only choose between 1 and 2, I'd
would have to vote 2 over 1, since releasing etch is my priority.  Err,
free software is my priority, too - I wouldn't have a proper choice
except rating both below "further discussion".

Furthermore, if the voting results in 3 beating both, we won't have a
proper statement about the post-etch situation, because both the pro-1
and the pro-2 group will still believe that in an isolated vote.
Especially if 2 beats 1, but misses the 3:1 majority...

In summary, since these issues are orthogonal, I'd rather vote
