Wow, that's interesting.  I don't often hear that, people using Tcl in  
their work.

Sure you can, its a .tcl script, meaning you are giving the user the  
source whenever you are giving the user the program.  So its even kind  
of BSD-ish because you can't give the user a GUI plugin without giving  
them the source, so you don't need to do anything else to distribute  
the source. Pd patches are the same idea.
