I was worried about the ministers - I didn't want two Ministers having an
easy time of it while one got all the props. But under Peter's Arbitrarily
Large Ministries prop, that wouldn't be an issue, so we could indeed use
nweek-based limits instead of period-based ones.

Well, you'd get at least 4 ndays, usually more unless your timing was
really bad.

I apologize if I was unclear; that's actually what I was trying to say
originally. Voting would open on a prop at the beginning of the first
period that starts at least 4 ndays after the prop was made. You'd get
between 4 and 8 days of pendingness - if you did it right at the beginning
of a period, then you'd get that period plus the next one, but if you did
it near the end, you'd only get the end of the period plus the next one.
