This is one of those messy things that our current system doesn't handle
all that well.  I'd really sort of like this to be a separate vote on a
different axis contingent on one of the changes to the seconding threshold
beating FD or the FD-look-alike option, but that's not an available option
in our voting system at present.

If Joerg isn't willing to accept the amendment, I suppose it's three
separate amendments that probably all need to be seconded independently.
