[EM] Minmax ranked method

As posted here many times, my method of Binomial STV averages a rational
election count with a rational exclusion count, respectively of the most
prefered and the most unprefered (reverse) ways of counting the ranked
choice of candidates.
For example, the ballot paper would record the number of candidates, say
42. Suppose you are usually a non-voter but there is one candidate who
you definitely do not want elected. Otherwise, you sink back into supine
apathy. You simply put the number 42 beside the despised aspirant and
leave it at that (if you like). This will definitely adversely affect
that candidate thru his resulting changed keep value. The other
forty-one blank preferences count towards a none-of -the-above-quota.
Returning a wholly blank paper would count as one vote towards an
unoccupied seat quota.
