The pd/tk interface doesn't need to change, at least so far it  
hasn't.  That is one thing I have been working to keep completely  
intact.  One thing that will have to change is s_inter.c since it  
handles the startup procedure.  Mostly, I think it'll be drastically  
simplified as most of the #ifdefs can be removed.

So far the C changes have been (diff attached):

- deleted t_tk.h, t_tkcmd.c, t_main.c
- removed #include "t_tk.h" from the iemguis (g_*.c) (unneeded in any  
- changed pdgui start line in s_inter to work on GNU/Linux

All that said, if you want to take this code Miller, then as a lump is  
really the only way.  Just taking bits would be missing the bulk of  
the improvements.  Or would be close to another rewrite in the amount  
of work, in my estimation.
