This patient only.

This may be added at some point.

Hints will get re-enabled under several conditions already:

- when the hint condition stops to apply (such that it will re-appear should
  the condition re-apply)

   think: hint to have PAP smear based on whether PAP smear has been documented,
   patient comes, hint is shown, hint is suppressed because patient relates
   appointment for pap smear two weeks hence, three weeks later patient returns,
   relates "normal PAP" which is documented, hence PAP hint does not apply 
   until "normal PAP" is, say, two years old (which depends on the hint 
   so suppression is cancelled (but hint does not appear until it re-applies in
   two years time

- when the hint has changed any existing suppressions are disregarded

OK, that seems like a reasonable approach.
