You tell me. I know litlle about where this file should live. You are right. 
It should go into examples. 

Does GNUmed create a reasonable config file if none is available ?
I remember the file I provide does copy the config file to a user's 
home dir. Maybe we should drop that.

But in that case we need to make a user aware of the situation that he or she 
needs to provide a reasonable config file. This is unusual. I can't think of 
a program which does not run without a config file.
