Nearly perfect patches

So here's a classic problem, illustrated with an example.

Evan rewrote the poll results display to group things by answer, rather than submission time, and the patch does what it does wonderfully.

But I'm afraid people will protest the removal of the ability to view answers by submission time also.

But Evan doesn't necessarily have the time or desire to add a view mode option, and neither do I.

So what happens? The patch gets dropped. Sad.

This is why it'd be nice to have Bugzilla up sometime soon here. (the instructions to set it up are sitting in my inbox... dormando might get that project, when he's free to work again)

Anyway, anybody want to continue work on the poll thing? If so, post a demo of it working and the patch in lj_dev.
