A reasonable default but: assuming many results can be
marked for signing at once which logic shall I apply ?
Majority ?

Currently this logic applies:

- if there is no review use the labs indicator if any
- if you or the reviewer said "normal" show no indicator
- if you or the reviewer said "abnormal" show the labs
  indicator if there is any or else show "!"
  there is a FIXME to make the latter "+" or "-"
  depending on available range information

Both get folded into one indicator by the above rules.

I would tend to think that that should be expressed
independantly of technical abnormality. Currently it turns
the whole result firebrick-red and bold so it stands out
