Tough. In such an situation there wasn't any consensus reached. Perhaps that
situation illustrates why the idea of "consensus" isn't sensible - but for
now it's the decision-making principle that people allege Wikipedia always
works under (although as I've said before, I say most of the time people on
Wikipedia do what they like, ignoring dissent and even claiming consensus
where there is none).
