BTR stands for Bottom Two Runoff.  Rob LeGrand apparently invented the
method. Someone besides me probably came up with that phrase. I came
up with the BTR acronym, and encouraged people to pronounce it as
"better". I briefly thought about trying to persuade IRV supporters to
promote BTR-IRV instead, but soon cooled off to the idea.
