Cool. I've played with Perl/Tk, and I don't really like the
bindings. It's certainly doable, but it feels "ugly" to me. Python's
Tkinter interface seems much nicer. I'll have to dig to see if/how this
can be done in either though. I want to expand my Tcl knowledge though, as
even the author of the Perl Expect module states that you should probably
just use Expect directly.
