does webkit provide a submilisecond setInterval()?

is there anyway to change how tcl/tk responds to input?

maybe like how in javascript instead of each cell of a table having an
onClick() ,
a single loadEventHandler is used foor.
the entire table, each tcl/tk canvas is kinda like each document element in
anytime user input occurs only controls that respond to that input need
redrawn. how about 2 different response modes? or 3even.
1 for patch editing, 1 for performance, and another for dynamic patching?
