Over at FHB they said this was a problem with swapping the line and load on the GFCI installation diagrams

I HOPE that's the only problem- if it is, it would be immediately apparent to the HO when his GFCI doesn't work, and not as likely to cause injuries.

That is true, if he has a new GFCI. The older ones would work either way, except the built in receptacle was not protected.
