I'm still undecided about this.  I just want to comment on this new trend
of compound proposals, which started with the Servant's Quarters proposal.  
My opinion is that nothing in the rules forbid it; if everything in a
proposal is allowed to be done by unanimous consent, then the proposal as
a whole can be decided by unanimous consent.
