[PD] tcl/tk vs. wx vs tcl/gtk

i just noticed there Gnocl which is a tk-like binding for Tcl/Gtk+ ... 
basically it lets your Tcl apps use Gtk+ widgets, and supposedly the API 
is pretty similar to Tk.  This might be an path to look into for 
speeding up the gui, it might be a LOT less work to port to this than 
rewrite everything in wx. 


Wx has the advantage of giving pd real native widgets on all supported 
platforms, but gtk+ is portable and is able to emulate natice look 
pretty well:


i'll add this to my endless list of "things i'd love to look into in 
depth" :)
