That may be so, but our method of removing choices that fail to win over
FD clearly causes the "normal" Condorcet tallying to fail later-no-harm in
situations where it ordinarily would not.

https://lists.debian.org/debian-vote/2013/05/msg00012.html offers a
possible solution which IMHO should be investigated more closely.
