Hmmm, I try to look very naively on the problem now:
Io_lib is a library of file reading and writing code to provide a general
purpose trace file (and Experiment File) reading interface.
So naively spoken this is a library for input output operations
which do not necessarily need a GUI. But Tcl/Tk is a GUI tool
(hmmm, well, I don't like it, but that might be me) and from the
description this is not part of io_lib - but something else.
Could it be that you should try to split io_lib into
general-purpose-trace-file_io-lib (or some more sexy name)
general-purpose-trace-file_gui (with the Tcl/Tk stuff)
Other projects might depend just from the first library and we might
circumvent strange Tcl/Tk issues.
