      Description

      In choice you have the option of displaying things horizontally or vertically. This affects both the list of options and (as long as the results are anonymous) the list of results.

      Strangely, the vertical list of options is paired with the horizontal list of results and vice versa.

      This seems incorrect since if you had very long option texts like vote for your favourite quotation then you'd want that to be given as much horizontal space as possible in both places. Similarly if you had short option texts (like A vs B vs C), you'd want to be able to take advantage of that compactness to display both options and results in a horizontal line.

      Looking back at 1.9 this seems to be different from the way that version did it.
