If you think of it as setting a default setting at the top and then
overriding the default further down (perhaps with a conditional, etc) then
it would make sense for the later to override the earlier.

However, Hans, your points on the other side are very legitimate.  Thus it
appears a configurable switch is needed to meet the needs on both sides.
This switch would ideally (in my mind) be at both the administrative level
and also with a markup override for a given page.

Suggested config switch:
    $PTVOptions['firstwins'] = 1;

Suggested markup:
    (:PTVoption lastwins:) // if the non-default config option has been
    (:PTVoption firstwins:)

This leaves a relatively flexible markup if there are other PTV options one
might want to set at some point in the future...
