Arguably the current rules are pretty ambiguous for the council.  The
rules are fairly explicit for the Foundation, where there are rules
about having membership-convened meetings/etc.

However, maybe we should avoid having a huge debate over this issue.
We can't even get a huge percentage of the developer base to vote in
an election in the first place.  I'm not too concerned about how we'll
handle the first organized recall.

My recommendation would be to let the council take the leadership on
this and organize a vote if necessary.  If we start seeing threads
with 85 unique developer participants chanting "down with the council"
then we can worry about how we bypass them.
