My suggestion was that it be co-written by partisans, e.g. you and Joe.
The thought was that this gets over the problem you describe in the same
way that a cake can be shared by one person cutting it in two and the
other choosing which half to take.

I feel that this is over and above the very correct point being made by
others that getting exercised about who is best is rather odd in the
first place.  A comparison of this sort would be a public service, in
any industry.  In the UK we have something called the Consumers'
Association which does such things full-time, published in a widely
read magazine called "Which?".
