Here's an example of an Approval election that could be used to test the
current best efforts at FBC definition (absolute utilities in

45 A($100) B($60) C($20)
30 B($100) C($60) A($20)
25 C($100) A($60) B($20)
D- First plus second choices

A 65
B 75
C 55

Votes to get bare majority (51)

A 45 plus 6 of 25
B 30 plus 21 of 45
C 25 plus 26 of 30

$60 median for each 51st vote.

Does B win (by satisfying the highest/ earliest majority) ???

As usual I note that in reality land of real public elections there would be 
a whole lot of $100 and $0 votes (with any 2nd or later choice $100 vote 
being conditional that it does not hurt an earlier choice).
