DesireData isn't supposed to require Tcl/Tk 8.5, but we are using Tcl/Tk 
8.5 and there's a change that slipped through without check that it exists 
on 8.4, and it's something difficult to do with 8.4, which is why it was 
added to 8.5. Therefore I thought about just requiring Tcl/Tk 8.5 but 
we're not sure yet. If pd-extended gets to require 8.5 then we will 
definitely switch to 8.5. (but de facto we have already switched, because 
of the problem above)
