Hi John,

thanks for the pointer , but of course I did not mean the python module but the Tk extension library
( http://sourceforge.net/projects/tkdnd ), which adds "real" dnd support to Tk.

As far as I have tested (not very much however) it seems to work now, but I'm still not sure if the on-the-fly adding of attributes
to classes of an imported module is proper programming style or "do-it-yourself lobotomy" .
It is the first time for me to try wrapping a Tk extension for python, so I am not sure of the way to go.

Anyway, it's a cool new feature for Tkinter, so I thought I should share it with the community;
anyone who is interested can find it at http://www.8ung.at/klappnase/TkinterDnD/TkinterDnD.html .

Any feedback is much appreciated.

Best regards
