Richard, do you mean specifically "[IRV] is the way to go" or that the use of the ordinal ranked-ballot is the way to go?

Single transferable vote [STV] means "IRV" to me and at one time I thought it would make little difference in outcome in comparison to Condorcet.  But 10 years ago, in my very own town, I found out differently.
