I've added a and file which uses distutils to do two things (which are built-in distutils behaviour):

1. Create a tarball for distribution (this is for developers to make releases) 2. Install gnumed into a users system, by specifying a prefix like /usr and a root like / or /builds/test/gnumed/image (end users and/or packagers)

python sdist
to create the tarball in a directory called dist by default

You can go into ./dist and try it out:
tar zxvf Gnumed-0.1.tar.gz
python install --prefix /usr --root ./image

There are some other things distutils can do, like create a windows executable installer, or create an RPM automatically. More to come. Hack away.
