It is a very sensible approach. Only that I took the blunt shortcut for my 
quick hack gnumed-mini and store the lot with every single prescription, 
Wasteful for sure, but was quick and easy to do.

Not at all. But using wxPython's built in module reduces dependencies.
It also makes it easier to "set up printers" from within gnumed.
Don't think there is any measurable performance advantage.
