Okay, then -- I'll forget every intent of looking at TCL.  =)  (Fine with 
me -- saves some good-for-nothing work!)

I think when I was thinking about TCL (and maybe Fare too), I was 
thinking more about experimenting with Tk than with TCL itself.  So 
another language interface should be fine there.  Really, if we're just 
going to ignore whatever language I experiment with here in the long run 
(in favor of the HLL, y'know?), this is more about creating interfaces 
than ellegant code.  But learning a better language at the same time 
would probably be a plus....

Thanks for the suggestions!
