Hello Miki,

Your project looks very interesting. It would be better if it displayed
an error message if it can't find the '_bcdrc' file. If you run it from
windoze it just appears and disapears.

How about allowing the '_bcdrc' file to be in the same directory as the
script as well.

Any chance of you releasing the Tkinter text interface as a separate
library, with a less restrictive license ? It looks very good - but I
can't use it in my projects if it is GPL.
