I think, that's a cool list of objects to have and it's great that
you're working on it. The names in Tk are very generic, though, which
is understandable for Tk itself, as it's largely self-contained. But
in Pd, there's even another [scale] waiting to clash with existing
objects and (private) abstractions, that's why maybe a short,
quickly-to-type namespace should be obligatory. What about [tk/scale]?
