I'm thoroughly impressed.  I had no idea this was possible.  If
it didn't require that I learn Tcl, I might use it.

The whole reason I wrote my Tkinter reference was that when I
started, there was nothing around but the Tkinter Life Preserver,
which explained how to convert Tk from Tcl into Python, but I
didn't feel like learning another language.

Tell me, Mr Kimbro, do you use Teco for a text editor?  You seem
to be an old-timer, based on your posts here.
