I am looking to make a custom Tcl/Tk widget available in Tkinter. It is
written in C/C++ and does graphics rendering of some custom astronomical
data formats. It has previously been driven stand-alone from a C++ program,
without benefit of python (i.e., the Tcl/Tk interpreter and its event loop
are currently created / run from the top level of a C++ program).

python/Tkinter, and embed the widget within that. I will need somehow to
send the widget various custom commands to control it from python. Probably
even harder, I will need to hook callbacks into various custom 'events'
generated by the widget, and process them in python.
Guidance / doc pointers covering any of these issues will be welcome.
