Yes. I for one didn't get around to answering that.

Yes. It's in there but not currently working.

Outside the scope of what GnuMed needs to worry about.

nice idea to keep around

hum, huh, yes and no, the next patient isn't even entitled to
learn who attended our offices from anything else but actually
witnessing the other patients' presence, so the lock window
would not show the last patient but a successful unlock
attempt will briefly remind us which patient is active

I tend to believe that's a good reason for writing another
client and not clutter the current client with it. That other
client may well be incapacitated by software to even open
read-write connections.

Walking needs to be mastered before attempting to run.
