[Mondrian] Default measure not configurable in Schema.xml.

We need a functionality by which we can specify a calculated member as a 
default measure.
Currently, Mondrian considers the first measure defined in a cube as the 
default measure, hence a calculated member cannot be default measure.

Is there an existing way(which we overlooked) to achieve this? Please let 
us know.

We could think of a solution where:

we have a property added to the cube element in Schema.xml to specify the 
default measure so that all queries use that measure
as default measure. It will be an optional property. If user does not 
explicity specify it, the behaviour will be the same as it is now. Do you 
foresee any issues if we add this property?
