That was the reason why I've avoided using the word "vote". Probably the word 
"poll" wasn't a much better alternative either. And yes, you are right, we can't 
vote on something and just because the majority agrees, it doesn't mean that it 
becomes right. The funny thing in this particular case is that maybe both 
proposed solutions are not the best.

I would be interested in more opinions because I think that only a few people 
are following this thread anymore.
It would be great if somebody could summarize the current discussion and start a 
new thread or even an RT. I won't have the time of doing it myself - at least 
not in a foreseeable future - but I'd happily discuss it.
