How about something to the effect that if the admin disapproves of a
proposal, it takes a 3/4 majority to pass it? That gives you the opportunity
to kill proposals like "The admin shall handwrite all proposals and mail
three copies, one in english, one in french, and one in pig latin, through
snailmail, to each player withing 25 minutes of the time each proposal
reaches a public forum" but leaves us the option of cutting back your power
if you become a player.
