But then if there's even only one other proposal that got one, neither
Bean's nor Scoff!'s proposals have a majority, 'cause Bean got 3 votes out
of 7 votes sent out, and Scoff! got 3 votes out of 7. 3/7 isn't a majority.

Good point, perhaps we should do multiple ballots, where the one with the least votes gets dropped, then we vote again on the remainder? Takes longer, but gets better representation...
