You running Sid? Mmmm, already quite a difference between Sid + Etch,
and that is just for the tcl packages!

apt-cache --names-only  search tcl | wc -l

apt-cache --names-only  search tcl | grep doc | wc -l

Saves manually counting them.

Don't forget to check that your /etc/apt/sources.lst entries point to 
etch and not testing, otherwise you may end up with a broken system once
etch goes stable.
