I realise there are already sufficient seconds to make this a valid
option on the ballot, but it seems reasonable to see what it actually
takes to get to the 15 or 30 or so seconds being proposed before voting.
(From the vote.d.o page I gather there's currently 8 seconds for the
proposal to require 2Q seconds, and 5 for Q seconds)
