[Members] order of candidates

In past years, we have listed candidates for Board and Council in 
alphabetical order. Because members have only a certain number of votes 
(e.g., 5 votes for Council), this is unfair to people whose names start 
with letters later in the alphabet. Therefore I propose that we 
reverse-order candidates by the date when they joined the community, 
measured by date of first post to the jdev or standards mailing list:

http://logs.jabber.org/jdev@conference.jabber.org/2008-09-02.html#16:33:41

This means that people who've been in the community longer would be 
listed lower down in the candidate list, with yours truly always listed 
last. That at least seems fairer than what we've done before.

Objections?
