Hi Peter,

Nice, I got as far as "I think that plurality is the worst 
possible..." before thinking to myself "I have antiplurality performing
worse," and what do you know, you thought of that. And random methods
are a pretty good exception too.

Since it seems that you know about the archives I don't think there
is anything else you can consult. There is no gospel truth on this
list... We have total agreement on very little.
It would be interesting to come up with a FAQ that outlines the 
various positions people take on age old issues. But I guess a
lot of perspectives could be attributed to exactly one person each.
And I'm not sure a collaborative approach would ever complete a 
version that everybody would be happy with...
