Now, that's a convincing argument we need some way to
"anonymize" the client instance on demand. I never yet saw it
from that angle.

For 0.1 we'll have to make do with going to another patient
before letting the current patient into the room. I suggest

into the search box and hit enter. Or else pull up the next
patient before letting them into the exam room.
