Psychology is very much part of medicine.

The underlying confusion stems from the fact that inside
Debian Med no clear distinction is drawn between Applied
Medicine and Medical Science.

No one in their right mind would suggest adding a CAD/CAM
application to Debian/Science just because it is used in
Applied Physics, namely, engineering.

Thus, I would wish for a much better distinction:

	Debian Science serving Science, part of which is Medical

	Debian Med serving the Practice of Medicine.

But that's *my* point of view.
