I had a look at your wrapper code. It is extremely well-organized and
On the one hand, you're giving users/devs a much improved API with which
and maintain GUI externals. I've been porting Pd to a different toolkit
away from tcl/tk), so I am intimately familiar with the many, many
reasons you don't
want to use or add to the existing widgetbehavior callbacks.
On the other, your improved API ends in Tk canvas subcommands, and thus
all the limitations and bugs of Tk canvas. For simple/limited GUI
widgets it's possible to
workaround these problems-- in most cases the external developer can
problems completely from the end user. But for complex things like a
those bugs and limitations are exposed fairly directly to the end user.
