Intermediate summary: it's a very close run between "social convention only" (3

3.5). Er, should I subtract the red 'x' votes? In that case "UI enforced,
no-one has +3" would win 2.5 against 1.  Let's wait another few days, maybe
more wish to submit their vote.

About "no-one has +3", I will dislike not being able to fast-track the odd
patch here and there, and will probably use my direct write-to-git permission,
instead of waiting and wasting other people's time on, say, whitespace changes.

On the poll page, a question was asked by "Anonymous", am hereby taking the
discussion back here:

IIUC introducing adding up of +1 votes requires some prolog script to be
added/installed/enabled in gerrit. Last time I asked whether anyone had figured
out how to do it the answer was a resounding "?".

To say it yet over again: whatever it takes, If someone is willing to make
gerrit behave that way, fine with me. But I will not be that person.
