I understand why the question, because

1) I said I would review method 1 vs 2, but I intended that to be in a followup 
email, which I did not yet do. Maybe I will not bother, if the question is 
already fully enough answered by the practical requirements, of which I just 
posted an example thereof (diabetes mellitus, diabetes insipidus, hypertension)

2) I said "However on this question… there are two main individual-patient 
scenarios, and the resulting across-patients-cascade scenario if it is to be 
implemented at all." but I did not answer it in any missing tail. Is this 
question even still needing an answer, whether to "cascade" anything across 
patients? I am assuming that changing anything in one patient will not change 
it in any other patient. THIS IS IMPORTANT -- PLEASE CONFIRM.

3) there was no signature block "-- Jim", which I had accidentally only "lost" 
because it seems the people that I deal with "locally" cannot cope with quoted 
text at the top of the email and reading down to my reply. They demand my 
replies to be always at the top of the email, and they do not like selective 
quoting, they always want the entirety of the thread preserved, in every reply. 
Therefore, when I reply to the GNUmed list, I must manually cut my signature 
from the top of my reply, and stick in on the bottom (unless I forget).
