Well, sort of. Similar to my comments on the VIBRANT toolkit; 
Tcl/Tk is primarily a user interface. We'll need to come up with 
a communication below in order to transfer files and sort out the 
problems with the graphics. Agreed, Tcl/Tk is nice, but writing scripts 
might become difficult if you need to go into interactive graphics. 
I noticed that Tcl/Tk becomes very slow if the number of objects 
handled is getting too large.
