[smokeping-users] Holes in graphs

The probe defined right under the "*** Targets ***" clause is treated as 
the default probe for all hosts if you don't specify one.   Explicitly 
specifying a probe for a host/host group is basically just an override.

The same logic is applied to pretty much everything in SmokePing's 
config file, by the way:  any time you go from a one configuration 
directive to a 'child' one (e.g. +option to ++suboption), the child 
inherits all of the options of the parent unless you override them, and 
the child's children inherit the overridden settings unless you override 
them again.

(Sorry for the dupe email, Eric, just resending for the benefit of the 
list -- my original reply got queued for approval due to message size, 
and I figured it was easier to cancel it and just truncate the reply.)
