[PD] who is using [entry]?

For the next step in the tkwidgets library is converting [entry],  
which I have done a lot of work on, to [text], following the Tk  
widget name.  (It turns out that "entry" is a different Tk widget).

Now I am going to apply what I have learned to a how library based on  
the Tk widgets.  I am naming them after the Tk widgets, so that would  
mean making an object called [entry] with is a text entry box, and  
renaming the currently [entry] to [text].  I am wondering how much  
people use the old [entry].  If not much, then I think the easiest  
path forward is to remove [entry] from flatspace and maybe stick it  
in "deprecated" or a "bbogart" lib.
