Hey that's great!
I can probably help once you get that part ready. One issue will be to
making sure everything builds using a newer version of tcl/tk than what
Pd-extended currently ships with. It might be good just to go ahead and
try 8.6 since it has some new tk::mac goodies.

There are a few other tk libs Pd-l2ork uses. I'm also assuming Tkpath
doesn't have any crashers in Windows-- I haven't tried it yet.
