I think all day-to-day users of our chat voted. Here are the results:
IRC: 4 Yes, 5 "if need be", 6 no.
Slack: 5 Yes, 3 "if need be", 7 no
Zulip: 5 Yes, 3 "if need be", 7 no
Gitter: 10 Yes, 1 "if need be", 4 no
It seems Gitter won. That's the only option with more "Yes" than
It's got the most "Yes" (even counting "if need be"), and perhaps

I sent an email to them off-list, perhaps they didn't see this thread.
Provisional results are as follows:
IRC: 2 Yes, 3 "if need be", 3 no
Slack: 2 Yes, 2 "if need be", 4 no
Zulip: 2 Yes, 3 "if need be", 3 no
Gitter: 6 Yes, 0 "if need be", 2 no
So Gitter seems on the verge of winning, but apparently some people are
categorically against it, so I'd say we'll have to give them a chance to
explain why. I'll wait for everyone to answer, though, since they could
completely change the results.
