The stretch operations have been the routines for handling entry-box
data input. I guess that I started adding them, got sidetracked in some
manner, and never finished the process. I'll take a shot at finishing
things up. For reference, look at the 'gtkmodify.py' file and look for
the code handling stretch operations. The bits of code for handling
the 'entry_event' are commented out.

That's very good news to hear.


Man once surrendering his reason, has no remaining guard against absurdities
the most monstrous, and like a ship without rudder, is the sport of every wind.
