Well, I was mislead by gmCfg.cfgSQL which always says "machine" instead of
"workplace".
But then, should we change the "machine" in "workplace" in  cfgSQL ? Do we
actually want machine-dependent settings (e.g. other screen size, local
hardware) ?

IMHO "workplace" should be called "role" (somewhat shorter than "Gnumed
personality"). Really machine dependent parameters should be stored under 
"DEFAULT_USER_CURRENT_MACHINE". That will mean that we will have to
restrict overriding of some parameters (i.e. you can't set these parameters
for a
particular user - or maybe only the admin can do that).
