IMHO no.

Last time I upgraded python2.2 to python2.3 *all* packages in site-packages/ 
had to be installed again (site-packages is version-specific). IMO installing 
everything in python/x.x/site-specific is not the way choosen for other 
languages (did you install all shell scripts in lib/sh ? all perl-programs in 
share/perl/whatever ? all C-source-code  / binaries under lib/gcc ?). The only 
way I could think of is that one separates generally useful modules and 
installs those in python/x.x/site-specific/gnumed . There are a lot of files, 
however, that should not stored there as they have almost no relationship to 
python, but only to gnumed  (data files, server-related files, config files, 
gnumed startup script). These should live somewhere else (i.e. in a place 
according to linux file system standard).
