yes, the tk interpreter is named wish, and any package providing such a
tk interpreter, should provide wish ? was my request do inclear
formulated ? currently all packages, that will work with any version of
tcl (any version of tk), require tcl | tcl7.0 | tcl7.4 | tcl7.6 (require
tk | tk4.0 | tk4.1 | tk4.2) but it would be easier to require "tclsh" :
that means any package providing a tclsh ("wish" : any package providing
a tksh). this way all tcl (tk) and tix (tkx ?) packages should provide

is this clearer now ? (is thsi correct english ? i'm not sure)
