The currently implemented conceptual approach is that GNUmed
drives OOo, not the other way round. It is technically just
as sound but easier to implement for our current needs.

Sure, but GNUmed will not let OOo ask itself for the data
but will rather parse the template and replace the
placeholder for, say, Sender. Then it will tell OOo to
create a document from the template. If that template
happend to be suitable for generating "letters" the document
will be a letter.

We require this as a TODO item.

Such may, indeed, more efficiently be done by making OOo
access GNUmed data by itself.

One approach I considered to make this happen is to use the
Wollmux project which does just that for the Munich City

Absolutely, when serial (?) letters are sent out that fact
should be documented, perhaps by importing the appropriately
adjusted copy into the patient chart.
