But as it currently stands, the menu says 'Install" but it is not GNUmed which 
makes the decision to run install, this is (via this menu) user-initiated.

Therefore it is completely reasonable that the way that a praxis would update 
an already-installed pack would be to re-run a (newer) installer.

Besides, you already answered that

        GNUmed > Master data > Update ATC
        GNUmed > Master data > Update LOINC

are to be subsumed under


so it may as well be

        Install / update data pack

even as we know the data pack script is going to eventually need to be smart 
enough to add vs update existing vs how to "obsolete" previously-installed 
reference data.
