I take back my comments about gnumed lacking a design phase. The problem is
that we never left it, constantly re-designing and re-re-designing, while our 
prospective beta-testers
become increasing despondent.

Don't get me wrong, these ideas have merit, but the purpose of the roadmap is 
rather than inclusionary: how can we get directly from *what we already have* 
to a minimal version,
which can then serve as base for XML adventures. In particular, the gnumed GUI 
is pretty much already done,
and has been so for many months, certainly we can have a minimal functioning 
version as described without
another widget.

Perhaps we should consider odd-even versioning like the Linux kernel: evens are 
feature-frozen, it aims to
to get it "out the door", odds are the cutting edge for trying out new features.
