Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Debt which cannot be paid will not be paid. You can call it default, you can call it restructuring, you can call it rescheduling. In the end what it means is creditors get a smaller cash flow out of the debtor, possibly for a longer time, possibly preserving the "net present value" of the cash flows.
