Done, except for the numbering of episodes.

Whether this is allowed or not can be toggled by means of a
config option now.

Does anyone think there's a sensible use case for being able
to open several editors for one and the same *existing*
episode concurrently ? I'd say this is only useful for new
episodes but I may be wrong ...

I don't think so.

The left shows what already exists in the medical record
(and it listens to what is being added elsewhere ;-) while
the right shows what is intended to be added to the record.

Empty editors are ignored on save in any case, regardless of
new or not. I did, however, add a Discard button which
re-confirms if the editor to be discarded isn't empty.
