The GUI layer is the easiest part thanks to the plugin architecture. You just 
write a specific dialog for the country specific demands and plug it into the 
right place in the user interface. No need for generalization here.

As to the drug database: drug information resides in the highly normalized 
drug database tables. Country specific bureaucratic information should reside 
in tables prepended with the country code, like "authority_regulation_de, 
authority_regulation_au" etc.

Then, we write a class accessing drug information with the  regulation bit 
implemented as a pure virtual function. When gnumed starts, it determines 
from the configuration which country specific mode it has to run in, the 
according plugins are loaded, and along them the according "handling" 

I can't see much problems here other than just doing it. Somebody with enough 
time at hand could just begin.
