The Resolving proposal with the next lowest serial number is the Resolving
proposal with the lowest serial number higher than that of the one in
question. So if we're looking for the next lowest integer after 4, for
example, it's 5. I'm fairly certain that works.

I'm against letting the Minister of Change renumber props, because then e
gets the power to unilaterally decide which of a set of conflicting props
wins out.

And the Grammar Nazi could step in and fix "couning" by Referendum.

Funny how much difference a single word can make... there's supposed to be
a "not" in there. A Priest may *not* take such actions.

Another candidate for fix-by-referendum.

Well, I have more plans for this. I was thinking that the LOTN should be
restricted to Senators, for example, and that a group of players working
together might get two Lobbyists to manipulate people and one Senator to
offset the Lobbyists' proposal loss.
