Python's useful for lots of things. But maybe I'll take your idea and
put the script at the end of a CGI webpage. It shouldn't change more
than a couple lines to do that. If you have a Sourceforge account,
BTW, Python is installed for shell sessions (most any other remote
account you might have, likewise).

Nah... worst case is that we'd be designing a system that would require
slight additional customization if/when IRV snowballs into use. The
changes involved would not be anywhere close to the largest
customization required between jurisdictions.

But I think consensus is forming around the idea that 2-D barcodes are
worthwhile, and available in GPL tools. So it'll probably be moot, and
we'll have storage space to burn.
