Because you have to make it support backslashes first.

I don't know what's going in your mind. With what you just said, I'm sort
of surprise that you don't just say again that Pd doesn't support
The other bug is in t_tkcmd.c, because there Miller wrote in 656 lines of
C what takes ~10 lines in pure Tcl, including trying to preemptively parse
Tcl commands instead of asking Tcl to do it, and getting it wrong whenever
braces are backslashed.

In your original question I believe you said that you were using
doublequotes, in which case  need backslashes. They don't need them when

I expect close-brace (as it is normally called) to fail at least
sometimes, in the process of backslashing it, when using t_tkcmd.c, using
certain combinations of backslashed and non-backslashed braces, but I'm
not sure. I won't try it, but as long as you wish to keep using t_tkcmd.c,
you will have to think about this.
