Looks like a great product. However, for the time being, it requires the Motif
libXm.so libraries, so this means investing at least 200$. This is a bit too
much for what I need. Why don't people use Tcl/Tk rather than Motif? All this
double version (with/without Motif) mess is too sad! And I had a scared look at
the OSF Motif price list on Metrolink. My first experience with $1,000,000 and
$3,000,000 entries...
