Ian, I like this a lot.

Let's collect a few more ideas:

- have a table in GnuMed that defines which LaTeX form to use in
  which situation, this will handle some of the i18n issues
- make extra sure that those associations are unique forever
- store the result of substitution/inclusion/pasting of data,
  TeX snippets etc as a TeX file that can be run through a
  standard LaTeX to reproduce the exact form with content
  (this is good for history keeping but sucks for re-use of form
  content - shall we store a combination of data values + form
  template with mapping instead ?)
- eventually support GnuMedlets - those are snippets of GnuMed
  Python code inside the LaTex GnuMed form template that call
  up specific functionality within the calling GnuMed instance
  (say, a lab data browser/selector), would have a
  function deGnuMedletize()
