Default TU Bylaws Amendment (SVP Section): Discussion Period

The changes address several issues recently brought up on this list. Briefly,
these include:
* enabling a vote to pass in the absence of quorum when more than 50% of active
TUs have voted YES
* enabling a vote to fail in the absence of quorum when 50% or more of active
TUs have voted NO
* clarifying the text to eliminate ambiguities


"clarifying" here includes deciding that "abstain" has a different
effect than "no" has. This is slightly beyond a clarification from the
previous bylaw text. So I mention it.

We can compare-and-contrast better looking at a patch, so +1 to that.
