Not at all.  Option 1 was the only option that failed to meet simple
majority.  Every other option on the ballot beat it by somewhere between
a factor of 2 and 3.  That seems like a pretty clear vote that the
solution you are advocating is not what the project wants.  While it's
true that the other options have various levels of support, they all
have more support than the option you put forward.  Unfortunately,
you're now moving into the argument by mail volume pattern, so I see
that you haven't accepted the outcome.

I think I'll stop now, as this is looking to become another tediously
long thread and it doesn't need more people repeating the same things.
