[Gnumed-devel] IMPORTANT change: __default__ as default value !

Hi all,

I just now realized how poor a choice '__default__' was as a
default value for, say, episodes or health issues. Poor
because '_' has a meaning in LIKE queries. Originally I
carried over the concept of '__' from Python but didn't invest
appropriate thought into the matter. My first reflex was to
use '***default***' instead but that's not much better since
'*' has meaning in regular expressions ...

So, I propose to change '__default__' to '>>>default<<<'.
Anyone got any objections ? If I don't hear back by Tuesday
I'll go ahead and fix our sources.
