Steve, & Tom Round suggested the candidate withdrawal option
as a solution for strategy problems for IRO, but it would work
with any rank-method, including Votes-Against. With that method
it would completely eliminate the order-reversal problem. An
advantage is that since reversal couldn't ever work, it wouldn't
be tried, and therefore the withdrawal would never need to be
used, except maybe once or twice at first.
