The "trivial" seems to come about by the misbelief that our
module imports somehow use GNUMEDDIR which they do not.
That's only used to access gnumed.py, nothing else.

gnumed(.sh) is there exactly to *be* a shell wrapper around
gnumed.py to allow the user to run additional shell scripts
before launching GNUmed. It doesn't make any sense to
convert it to Python.
