1. Since our paper ballot is primary, it appears that the glass issue
may not apply.
2. People with limited vision (some people can read only large print
or print that's close to their eyes) won't be able to *read* the
paper trail, but will be forced to listen to it.
3. It is important that the voter can see all of his or her ballot,
but none of any one else's ballot.
4. How does the printout-on-tape approach deal with privacy due to
sequence of the ballots cast.

In fact, I'm going to add the 4th issue to our paper on privacy in e-voting.
