Ah, ok... I didn't read your explanation very well, I assumed that was
just placeholder text because of the funky underscores :)  In that case,
is there really any need for an additional indicator?  Other than
keeping it first in the list, which I'd agree probably makes sense.

(Also, I'm presuming "__default__" is some nasty string that you're
getting from X or something, but would there be any chance of replacing
it with the less-geeky "Default", for the purposes of the UI?)
