   This situation calls for the application of Thomas Saaty's Analytical
Hierarchy Process (AHP). A good summary is on wikipedia:
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Analytic_hierarchy_process>, and web searches
will augment that information.

   It's easy to implement with octave as well as with python code. Perhaps
there is a package within R but I've not found one.
