Thanks Karsten, better to keep wxNotebook. But for GUIs we need  but use
icons instead of text labels, otherwise there's just too many.

For some reason I had assumed that the scratch pad was for entering
history notes, while using the main window for viewing/prescribing. With
a three-way split it (the scratch-pad) does seem a little superfluous.

Just thinking on the fly here, perhaps we could have a totally
configurable interface -- users could define areas, then add plugins to
each area, forming notebooks where one than one plugin is added to an
area. wxSlashWindows could be used so users can vary the sizes, then a
"plugin" selector, so modules like prescribing window, drug list, etc, can
be dropped into the windows.

I was thnking of something like a (very simplified) Glade interface.
Obviously the adminstrator can pick a default configuration for the site.

How does this sound?
