The value of the time it would take to do it would probably
exceed the cost of a new machine running Windows or *nix.
How important is it that the thing should run on your Risc PC?

By the way, I have a hazy recollection that someone *did* port
some, at least, of Tk to RISC OS. I don't know how easy it would
be to make the Python port work nicely with it, and I don't
now remember how complete the port was or who did it or anything
useful like that.
