Excellent :-).

I assume this is on GCL?  Do you think if you have time you could
summarize the issues you ran into?  It could be very helpful for the
GCL and McCLIM teams - as far as I know you are the first person in
quite a while to take a stab at it.

Right - another great reason to use lisp :-).  Actually, from what I
saw of hyperdoc it looks like it won't really need McCLIM's features,
so ltk is definitely the logical choice (especially if ltk works with
Windows Tcl/Tk?)
