I agree.
My only nitpick is the chicken-and-egg scenario: we need gmCfg to
read the config file, we need the config file to find gmCfg....
                - inline the code into (~200 lines)
                - use Python's own ConfigParser class.

We still haven't resolved the default install location issue.
I vote for /usr/share/gnumed/, mainly because that's 
Debian policy, and escapes Python upgrade traumas.
