If you are going to add Tcl support, I highly recommend that you  
check out the loader functionality that Thomas wrote.  Its in both  
devel and MAIN, and there is a working CLR version working.  I am  
thinking you could implement a Tcl loader and Pd API layer, then  
you'll be able to write regular Pd objects directly in Tcl.

It's about as sensible to say we declare war on night attacks and  
expect we're going to win that war.  We're not going to win the war  
on terrorism.        - retired U.S. Army general, William Odom
