Couple of difficulties (not saying we shouldn't try to surmount them):

  • Voting is on arbitrary server commands (not just setting options, although that's the common case). Currently the voting code (e.g. describe_vote()) doesn't understand the meaning of the command enough to identify which option, if any, is under discussion. (Clearly we could special-case this with enough work, since parsing is happening for the pre-vote 'check'.)
  • Need to be careful with the string length, as IIRC the client typically needs to display this on a single line. Voting on one of the bitwise options could easily blow the budget.

So, if timeout is 60, instead of showing:

New vote (number 35) by SoleilSoleil: set timeout 80 (needs 51% in favor).

Shows:

New vote (number 35) by SoleilSoleil: set timeout 80 (current value is 60).

Or

New vote (number 35) by SoleilSoleil: set timeout 80 (needs 51% in favor; current value is 60).

Current value is much important to a player who is about to make a choice.
