I had done that, but my knowledge is limited, I just got that it did with
tcl/tk and so I asked if we could have this as some tcl/tk plugin, but I
wouldn't know if there was something else in the way I just couldn't see...

Awesome, so it seems there's nothing "unreasonable". I'll put a pin on this
then, and talk to a friend who already worked with tcl/tk plugins to see if
he'd be interested in doing this.
