Well, the biggest cryptic thing in the Bylaws are lines like:
> bool SVP( motion, unsigned short discussion_period, float quorum,
> unsigned short voting_period );
> SVP( addition_of_TU, 5, 0.66, 7 );

We probably shouldn't look at TU procedure so much like a computer
program. hah.

I would change the SVP lines to something like:

> Addition of a Trusted User:
>    5 Five days of discussion
>    7 Seven days of voting
>  66% Sixty-six percent Quorum

> This is today logic. And this time my eyes read until the end.
