wrt. QSRV

Before I was thinking of a different special condition from dbPutField() which I do replicate in QSRV to decide whether a Put should dbProcess(). (since I can't use dbPutField() with groups) In the case of QSRV, this is a default which the client can override with 'record._options.process' in a pvRequest blob.

wrt. PP/NPP while I don't like these (seemingly) odd conditions in dbPut() or dbPutField() or dbNotify. Working around one by adding another to dbDbPutValue() does not seem like a sustainable way forward.
