Unfortunately I don't have time to study it now, but a quick perusal
makes it seem written in a clear, easily-understood style of writing.

Am I to assume that this method solves the problem of irrelevant
alternatives (the spoiler problem) in all cases unlike both plurality
and IRV?

I do not know what "clone-independent" means (perhaps I should by now).
