[EM] SARA voting: easier-to-describe MAS

Support Accept Reject Abstain voting works as follows:

   - Voters can support, accept, reject, or abstain on each candidate.
   Default is abstain.
   - Call a candidate "acceptable" if they are rejected by 50% or less and
   supported or accepted by over 25%. If any candidates are acceptable,
   eliminate all who aren't.
   - Give remaining candidates 2 points for each "support", 1 point for
   each "accept", and half a point for each "abstain". Highest points wins.

This moves a bit away from the Bucklin roots of MAS, but it further reduces
the instability of cooperation in a CD scenario.
