If we had a weekend, a few people, and enough different systems, we could probably find a solution.

In my thinking, I'm kind of pushing things in steps:

1. make pd easier to build on platforms and in the same way
2. have the same font on all platforms
3. introduce the extended sizing (and probably tweak)

We're still working on Step 1 as the auto tools build is not working yet on Windows. I will probably get to that next at some point. I already have plans laid out for Step 2, but this relies on Step 1 working, etc. Having Step 1 means we can much more easily spread out the testing and tweaking to other people.

At the very least, it seems like Tk 8.4 is out on macOS 10.13 so it's a good thing I did the work to update Pd for Tk 8.5 on Mac, even if it does introduce a few wrinkles.
