I don't want to repeat all the facts, that were already discussed, so just
commenting on the wrong points, as Emilien asked me to do so.

The gnuhealth modules are very well obtainable as separate packages as they are
released separately on PyPi.

Indeed a requirement, if this task shall succeed. It is really really required
to be aware of the basics of Tryton (and subsequently the gnuhealth modules) to
get a generic and widely usable layout.
