I guess you misunderstood my concern to do it right, fair and equal for 
me pushing through a point. I agree it was rather mechanical, but hey, 
it served a purpose. I'm happy with the results. Indeed very happy. I've 
strong feeling whe have really accomplished something. And somehow i 
think it is impolite to ignore a vote once it is cast, and that was 
probably the main driver for the tally of vetos. And really i could not 
think of another way to determine the consensus.
