Equal rankings are permitted.  In that sense it is different from Bucklin.
 You can rate two candidates as Preferred rather than one, so it passes
the weak FBC.  You can rate one candidate as Preferred and all others as
unacceptable, so that you aren't _forced_ to support an additional
candidate when nobody gets a first-place majority.
