Then why is it that Miller's notes say that the GUI was completely 
rewritten ?... It seems like it's not very clear for everybody involved !
It should not come as a surprise, *therefore* Miller needs to state things 
differently !

With the amount of borrowing that I can see in the code, it would be more 
fair to say that perhaps half of the Tcl side was rewritten from scratch, 
but it would take more time to measure it more precisely.

You know, if you search-and-replace to use namespace prefixes all over, 
and to use the proc "_" for localisation, it doesn't count as rewriting 
those lines you changed.
