Eh, that's the *non*-pairwise version, as far as I can tell; the "pairwise"
version can't refer to first preferences or "any" preferences. It just says
that if the greatest number of votes against X in some contest exceeds the
greatest number for X in some contest, then X mustn't win. I used this
criterion as a filter in my "attempt at a method satisfying FBC and SDSC"
