o This is a major release, so perhaps some compatibility with mainstream tcl stuff
has been introduced. :) I'll check these. (tcl, tk, itcl, tix, whew..)
o Check which of the many subdirectories of insight can be excluded from the
package. Fot those that can't be excluded just ship those private versions
with insight since it's such a useful thing.
o Hoping that someday developers will learn to be more packager-friendly :)

Andrew wrote me telling about the oddities with the package. He told me that he
just threw the extras in /usr/share/insight, which seems plausible enough to me.
(what's wrong with this balsa thing? it seems to ignore my .signature)
