1) Installation. 

I agree, the installation experience is seriously crap. I often have 
trouble if I get behind on updates, despite having been involved as a 
developer for nearly 2 years.

Installing from CVS has never been for the faint-hearted, for any 
package, this is why 
Gnumed needs to be properly packaged. Sebastian is working on windows. I 
have promised RPMs, Andreas Tille already has .debs. I urge him again to 
consider an apt-get'able repository, despite gnumed's low 
functionality. With this work, gnumed installation will be automated and 
hopefully quite easy.

2) Aesthetics.

Most people are using wxPython on GTK 1.2, which undoubtedly looks crap.
Moving to GTK2 allows almost infinite configurability of widget 
appearance, borderless widgets, whatever, but this is done *outside*
the program code, in a separate "theme" file. I am happy to write
a "Terry theme" to whatever specifications.

However, I'm also happy to move to Qt, but given the work invested in 
wxPython, I'm inclined to the former.
