Hi again,

I should add one small point to the message I posted a few minutes ago.

Assuming the orderings do not need to be strict orderings, and assuming 
(Withdrawal)PluralityRule is the method used to tally, there is a question about how to 
count an ordering that ranks two or more non-withdrawn candidates at its top.  Its weight 
could either be split or counted fully for each of those candidates.  I favor the latter, 
but I think it would tend to work well either way.
