I understood it like this and thus I wondered whether we should probably
*also* depend from this in the med-practice task (and perhaps other we
might have just forgotten).

Ahh, OK.

Well, the source of OsiriX is there.  I was told it is "impossible" to
port to anything else than Mac OS X because it heavily relayes on some
internal features.  However, I have learned that "imposible" is usually
not the proper wording:  It's just that it needs somebody with high
energy and the dedication to a project ...
