Right-click, but yes.

Eventually, yes.

It does not delete those (as you noticed) which will be
readily visible if bewildering.

I added a column .is_virtual to the dem.v_message_inbox view
such that we can safely detect such messages. Such virtual
messages are better thought of as notifiers.

Attempting to delete on will result in a beeped

        You must deal with the reason for this message to remove it from your 

in the status line.

Due to the above behaviour this is not necessary.

This has, of course, always been what GNUmed did.

Yes. It is not. Think of it as a notifier rather than
message. IMO notifiers would exist as long as the condition
they notify on exists.

Yes, eventually.

Surely does.

Ah, OK. So it now sayeth this:

        No double-click action pre-programmed into
        GNUmed for message category and type:


I avoided "defined" as this might make the user think they
can (easily) define one themselves (they can but they'd have
to hack the source code).
