Yes, indeed - even for those of us greybearded enough to remember the
previous one (and others yet more grey than me who remember whatever came
before) it's quite a demonstration of what one can do with a simple bot, as
well as having a considerable amount of thought and careful design in it.

Newer members might not remember, but the previous bot always offered
candidates in the same order, and there was a slight disadvantage to being
last. Mind you, that did mean that we didn't get fully half the Board
candidates in the last 12 hours before voting...
