Right. What I say only applies if replacing the word Cocoa by the word 
Carbon. In any case, making Tk buttons and sliders on either Tk/Carbon or 
Tk/Cocoa gives round Aqua buttons & sliders using Apple's code (no 
imitation), but people using Tk are often not trying to follow Apple's UI 
guidelines, except maybe the most important ones.
