In the long run this has probably harmed Tk seriously.  If Tk was just
a widget set divorced from Tcl, then it might have been chosen as the
underlying widget set for GNOME or KDE, and then have benefited from
the development work done for those projects, such as the GNOME canvas
enhancements, which now can't be absorbed back into Tk without a lot
of effort to merge the two sets of code.
