As a believer in the UNIX philosophy, I'd say that you'd probably want
three pieces of software there: one to manage clients and appointments,
one to manage the DB of remedies, and one for accounting/payroll.
Having that all in one package will just mean it's mediocre at all
three.

Speaking of which, I've never seen an open-source package that does
payroll.  Does such a beast exist, or does the myriad of rules it would
have to comply with prevent its existence?

Cheers,

Eric
