Ok, David, I understand better now.
(Putting on my monday morning quarterback hat.)
If the original design specifies that
* If you load extension with .so/dll, you are required
load tcl from .so/dll.
then we can get rid the stub interface, right?
That doesn't sound like an unreasonable requirement for
people who use any tcl + extension.
I still think Tcl'folks did a great jobs, just like to know the
trade off vs. features better.
