Btw on Linux and other X11-based systems, you should distinguish between
Tcl/Tk 8.4 vs 8.5 (or old 8.5 vs new 8.5), because the newer Tcl/Tk
uses Truetype fonts only, whereas the older ones use non-Truetype fonts
only, and the Truetype default Courier is rather horrible in terms of
wasted space (all sizes) and readability (at the default size).
