Currently, there is no way to totally manage server-based metadata from the
client because one cannot easily transfer metadata documents among the modules
of dmanclient. Need to make it so that mde can seamlessly upload metadata to
the server (done, needs UI improvements), then when the querybean finds one of
those documents in a search, the user can right click on the record and choose
"Edit" from a popup menu to open the metadata document in mde. This reuires
that a single-click on the resultset record only selects the record, so that the
user can right click to get the popup menu. Consider making a standard
interface among the modules for transferring a metadata document from one module
to another.

Increased the priority and severity on this bug, as it is an extremely important
feature of the client.

Reopened because the document does not cache the docid that is returned from the
server in the mde document when it is opened from the query window, nor when it
is a new document and is saved to the database. Thus, each time one does "Save
to database", a new document is generated (via INSERT). This is related to bug
#91 because it involves the synchronization of docids. This bug shoud stay open
until a document can be cleanly created, saved to the db, queried, edited, and
resaved to the db without any lost docid information.

Current version of MORPHO can edit a document returned in a query and then
submit revised document back to server.
