The grid class allows very complex selections of non-contig
cells. This particular selection came about by clicking the
column label field (the date) thereby selecting the whole
column. Then holding down CONTROL and clicking the row label
(the "1") thereby adding the entire row to the selection.

Note that column "test" is technically a standard column but
is treated as a special column holding test result names.
Putting test names on the row label instead of the numbers
didn't work well enough for what we plan to do with it.

No. All items within the table that are *selected* when the
review is invoked.

indeed :-)

That looks rather ugly. Selecting the visible cells is
rather a snap via click-dragging.

No way ! :-)  What the test_org thinks is what they think.
GNUmed wouldn't dare alter that even if a misguided user
thinks that'd be a good idea. A user review attaches to a
certain result (or document) what that user thinks about it.
One limitation (which seems logical to me): There can only
be one review per result per user (which can be altered, of
