I thought stubs were for extensions. The tkinter case is slightly the
wrong way round as it starts tcl up. Checking I find that only one non-
standard thing is called, TclpInitLibraryPath. Checking in Tcl_Main I
reckon that this is now included inside the call to Tcl_FindExecutable.
so theoretically I can do a dynamic dll call to find Tcl_CreateInterp
and get the initial interp followed by Tcl/Tk _InitStubs etc etc to get
the active routines into the stubs table.
