this sort of came up recently when we decided to delete the user with

not exactly sure where the defaults should go, and whether to tie them to a
"default" user or not, but you're right, no way we want them hardcoded

the original concept was that a user would be able to save a unique scheme,
and then other users would be able to pick this scheme, subject to PRIV
constraints, either to use just for viewing (so the scheme id would have to
be saved in the cookie) or to use as a basis for designing a new one...

if i could only get out from under this pile of backlogged work i have, i'd
give it some more thought and design something more comprehensive for the
