The GUI plugin stuff is all Tcl/Tk right now. That said, you could  
write a Tcl/Tk extension in C, and include that in a GUI plugin.  I  
don't think anyone has done that yet.  I was hoping to see a working  
Python/Tkinter GUI plugin for Pd, I think that should be possible  
without a lot of work.



Terrorism is not an enemy.  It cannot be defeated.  It's a tactic.   
It's about as sensible to say we declare war on night attacks and  
expect we're going to win that war.  We're not going to win the war on  
terrorism.        - retired U.S. Army general, William Odom
