OK, but how does the PMC "oust" the current chair?  We can't require
consensus in order to start a vote or else a power-hungry chair would just
veto that attempt.  I don't think a single PMC member should be able to
start a vote either.  We don't say what kind of vote is going to be used
to select a new chair either.

I'm thinking we should try to put some words about this in the guidelines.
