I actually agree with Ossi.
I think the eV is big enough so that a vote should qualify as being 
representative for KDE developers (we could even say: "please vote only if 
you are a developer"). 
It's not meant to make any decision.
Just if we see, the result is 50/50, this would be a clear sign it's not 
unanimous, if it's 90/10, it is.

Problem is, it's the only thing we have, so due to the lack of other 
alternatives it's the best one ;-)
