Note that clin_medication is NOT AT ALL the table where script
information is stored ! And so the comment says. It is used to
store the current medication of the patient.

Scripts are stored in form_instances/form_data.

There is no such thing as repeats in Germany. For *any* refill
you'll need to get a new prescription from a doctor.

Sure, but IF at some poing GnuMed is going to adopt a "foreign"
way of storing and handling clinical data it is very likely to
be OpenEHR. However, for that there need to be bodies of code
implementing that Archetypes stuff.
