        Apart from the fact that these are under separate sections of
 the constitution (recall §4.1, position statement §4.5) and thus
 arguably independent resolutions (which, I suppose, can still be put
 on the same ballot), we have these five courses of action that are
 present on the proposals and amendments:

 A) Recall the DPL
 B) Do not recall the DPL
 C) Affirm DPL and say nice things about dunc-tank (Loïc)
 D) Affirm DPL and be non-commital about dunc-tank  (Joss)
 E) Do not affirm anything.

        A and C are mutually exclusive, as are C, D, and E. Given
 this, a joint ballot would have to look like:
1) A + C
2) A + D
3) A + E
4) B + C
5) B + D
6) B + E
7) FD

        Now, even if A + C and A + D seem pathological, 
1) A + E
2) B + C
3) B + D
4) B + E
5) FD
        Which is better. But the consensus seems to be emerging that
 these are separate issues, an d separate ballots look like:

 [  ] Recall
 [  ] Do not recall
 [  ] FD

 [  ] Affirm DPL + approve dunc-tank (Loïc)
 [  ] Affirm DPL                     (Joss)
 [  ] FD

        No, that is not so. Since your recall is an independent
 resolution from the affirmation, you are  not delayed.  Since  Loïc
 did not accept Joss's amendment, he is not delayed either -- only
 accepted amendments to a proposal reset discussion times. (same is
 true for combining
