Pie menus? Are you kidding? I vote aye!

I believe Switzerland manages it. Genuinely. They seem to have a
referendum every two weeks :)

Seriously, I agree with this bit. I think the process is needed. I
think we probably don't all need to vote on everything. I'm sure
you don't want my opinions on gnome-libs; and no offence, but I am
not sure I'd want everyone here voting on DocBook tags :)

I think someone had a good point about timing, though. Things
shouldn't drag on massively, but there are plenty of people who
would not get to read mail in time. I recall on the foundation list
there was a show of hands about switching from the slates idea.
And that was run over two days. And I was away for 48 hours, and
guess which hours those were?
