I agree, if we had had several options, *anything* other than FD might
have won. If we had Don's sensible proposal *in addition* to Nicolas'
original, the vote would have distributed between said options. So,
please, if you have any alternative wordings and results, once (if?)
this gets enough seconds, do propose further ballot options.

The reason I pushed Nicolas' original proposal again is that I believe
that we can acknowledge ten years ago we *tried* to follow a nice
process that goes well with our collective intentions, but
failed. Recording it as failed does not mean we cannot try any new
options, it only means we acknowledge reality (and are not
hypocritically leading people to believe we intend to implement a
process that has proven impossible to).

OK. So, if you don't, others, please do.

Of course, if Further Discussion wins again, I don't think I will lead
said discussion further :)
