Does anyone know of a multiple-seat election method that yields
proportional representation if the number of seats is large and the
Condorcet winner if there's only one seat? Such a method would likely be
better than STV for small (<10) numbers of seats since IRV's flaws
probably extend to STV, though a lesser extent. It would also be helpful
to defuse the argument that IRV is better than Condorcet because it allows
the same system to be used for multi-winner and single-winner elections.
