It's a simple thing.  State the top three preferences and mark whether
each should be preferred to no-change.  Guido is smart enough to
interpret the results.

If over a hundred posts weren't sufficient to express an opinion, by all
means, submit a vote in any format and I'll attach it to the results. There
is no need to leave anyone feeling angry and unheard.   After all, it is
basically an opinion survey so Guido can get a sense of how the
community is leaning.

That person sufferred much negativity here and no longer has the time
or inclination, so he passed the torch to me.  Hopefully, I'll be treated
better.  I'm volunteering the time to tally the results and then Guido
will make the call.
