Who said I wouldn't ?
My original post was to rule out a cleaner solution; I hate wasted

Thanks to Arjen Markus for his weekly reports on the Wikis:
Need a delightful little application of no practical importance? Well,
your Wiki chronicler will explain later on ...
Looking at Tcl
- The page which intends to list what features or functionality
Tcl is missing is old and in need of updating:
- Here is one good reason for that conclusion: handling directed
graphs - another delightful little app: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/18129>
Looking at Tk
- Object-orientation again ... will the ingenuity of Tclers never end?
<http://wiki.tcl.tk/18151> and <http://wiki.tcl.tk/18115>
- And yet another widget to hide the complexity of cooperating widgets:
"scrodgets" take over scrollbar management for you -
Looking at graphics and games
- Remember to visit <http://wiki.tcl.tk/17771> evrty once in a while,
as new 3D graphics demos become available.
- Your chronicler is rather proud of Plotchart, his main contribution
to Tklib. So a gallery was definitely called for!
- Take the fun out of sudokus and have your computer have a go at
Looking at a delightful little app
- Your chronicler never realised this was possible. And if you
can not easily understand French, just try it.

There's also a high-quality Wikibook on Tcl:
ActiveState maintains binaries distribution and development tools
along with a Cookbook of Tcl recipes
"La Gazette du Tcleux" is an important monthly publication.
deli.cio.us presents an intriguing approach to reference commentary.
It already aggregates quite a bit of Tcl intelligence.
Cameron Laird tracks several Tcl/Tk references of interest (but
needs to validate many of the links).
Years ago, Cetus Links maintained a Tcl/Tk page with verified links
"Yahoo! Groups" archives comp.lang.tcl.announce posts--even
though clta itself is dormant.
We're working on more useful archives of past installments. In the
