I also posted a summary/overview with links to the 4 polls in the
forum on d.o, for potentially better visibility:


Please read that, then follow the links to each poll. I've posted
analysis and explanation for the questions as the first comment on
each poll, including a pretty complete list of pros vs. cons.

Comments are now officially welcome. Instead of forking the
discussion, please do *not* reply to this email, but comment on the
appropriate poll node on g.d.o. I've already disabled comments on
the summary forum post on d.o. In a week or so, I'm going to make my
decisions and start implementing things, at which point I'll close
the polls (both figuratively and literally). So speak now or forever
hold your peace. ;)
