Sorry 'bout that, it was late and I just hit "reply".  I look for 
whups_types.type_name beginning with an underscore "_" to denote that this 
is a default, or template Type.  I created Driver/sql functions called 
getAllButDefaultTypes, and getAllDefaultTypes, changed the calls in 
Admin/admin from getAllTypes to getAllButDefaultTypes, and use the Default 
ones in my Merging methods...

It would be easy enough to change the "_" to something else or even make it 
a preference...

Gotta run, I'll post the diffs tonight...
