This is an oversight. I thought I had included 67% vote as the
threshold for changing the bylaws, but I see now that we only
put that threshold for amending the Articles of Incorporation.
Probably when I was reading it over, I read "Articles of
Incorporation" and thought "bylaws".

If we just say 67% of Active Members must vote to approve a change to
the bylaws, we can avoid the futzing around with the complex
California code. This is a suggestion only; I'm happy to just default
to CA code if that's what y'all want.
