of course that begs the question, is wx/python measurably more efficient 
than tcl/tk?  i've tried to find some objective benchmarks but have had 
no luck so far.  i think really before the massive and disruptive 
process of porting pd to a new toolkit there needs to be an objective 
evaluation if tcl/tk really is to blame for the perceived graphical 
issues.  i'd wager that there is a lot of optimising with the current 
tcl/tk gui left to be done before you can conclusively say that tcl/tk 
is junk.
