I ask Mr Simmons to e-mail into that mailing list the definition of a
"Condorcet method", subject to the constraint that the definition
take account only of the polytopes (or shapes) that are the
definition. Anything unique that you have. You have not ruled that any
method that is _not_ what you would call a Condorcet method can
nevertheless be constructed from some ingenious use of pairwise
comparing. What is a a "Condorcet method" ?. It is a question that
others would not want to answer.
