There are bugs in the Windows code for the latest version
(4.80). IIRC, it also depended on a version of Tk which isn't the
standard. None of the problems were impossible to solve, but they were
a mild pain, and the result is *not* the same as the original, as the
supplied .pyc file is somehow built as a single file from multiple
source files.

The author is also effectively uncontactable, which makes getting
fixes included in the source pretty much impossible.

package it up again, I'm sure the result would be of value to a lot of
