That would be my preferred solution. FWIW we have been using Condorcet
on the technical leadership side (PTL elections and Technical Committee
elections) since the beginning.

Like many others, I just thought that adjusting the cumulative vote
rules would be a nice incremental improvement that doesn't require
bylaws changes ("look! it's still cumulative!")... but lawyer(s)
apparently disagree :/
