This all sounds awesome, and exactly the direction that things should go
in. The MemberDB code is not-exactly-best-practice of a dozen years ago,
so there's an awful lot that can be improved. Considering the tricky bit
is actually just the voting, it's quite likely that redoing the rest of
it in a modern framework would be excellent and not too hard.

Probably a bunch better than all the manual PHP from way back when.
