Note: While I've hinted over the past week that I thought such
a clause would be a good idea, I haven't put much time into
thinking about the wording, and I'm certainly no lawyer.

So, if you want to forward this to them, it would be a good
idea to say that we're open to suggestions and to say that the
wording you're forwarding is at best a stab at solving the
problem of forcing those who use our code for voting applications
to maintain the auxiliary documentation we believe is essential
for any production code used in such applications.
