Yes that's what I mean. You can't vote twice for Windows. But you could vote
for Windows and Unix.

That's difficult because there's no standard way people vote. I've often
wished we had something like that. I often use the release.py check-sigs as a
check, but you can't use the signature count for anything useful. For one
thing the signature doesn't tell us what platform was tested (people often sign
the zip files when they only voted for unix). Another problem is you may have
multiple signatures from the same person on the same file (either as a mistake
as has happened in the past or due to signing with multiple keys).

So I think we'd have to agree to use a given template for release voting.
