Privatize Living #private #reports #gedcom

This script sets private the events, alternate name facts, and personal notes for persons whose Living flag is set. Thus, reports and GEDCOM can take full advantage of the options:
thus providing many more combinations by which these outputs may be tailored.

This is a first pass script, lightly tested so use the usual precautions and feedback any problems. There is a known problem with privatizing notes that are already privatized - RM may output a closing brace character "}".

/* 2013-12-14 Tom Holden ve3meo
Privatizes events, alt names, personal notes for persons with Living flag set
so that reports can be made with names of living persons but no details while
full details are outputted for the deceased.
 
To Do: privatize family note when one spouse is Living.
 
N.B.: There is a series of queries in a comment block at the end which can be run
to UNDO the privatization, it is nevertheless advisable to run this script against
a copy of your database in case the process is not perfectlt reversible. Of course,
you may wish to keep the resulting privatization if it suits your purposes so that
reversal is unnecessary.
