I really disagree here, as this slows down navigating the interface
(click at the bottom on "clinical", then click again up top to select
the clinical widget -- 2 clicks too many)
Also we are unable to formulate or enforce any rule about where
(clinical/toplevel) widgets should go: result total confusion, new
users will have to memorise an arbitrary system for where widgets go.

Will be back soon.

IMHO this is the way to go.
Remember the list of modules loaded is user dependent: so a secretary
logging in will get demographics, billing, recalls etc., a doctor
will get all the clinical ones, and the adminstrator will
(in the fullness of time) modules for user account management etc,
so we already have separate clients in that sense.
