      QOTW: "[L]earning Emacs to check TCL style is a bit like
      learning to play the piano because your stereo's broke..."
      -- Ed Suominen

      "The panedwindow is a container widget. Thus has it been
      spoken ..." -- Jeff Hobbs

      POTW: Nagelfar 1.0b1 and Eskil 2.0 by Peter Spjuth. "Nagelfar is a syntax
      checker for Tcl, written in Tcl." "Eskil is a diff GUI, rather simliar to
      TkDiff." Among other nice features, Eskil highlights changes within a
      line, and has a "zoom" feature for long lines (because side-by-side source
      panes aren't very wide).

      [interp alias] doesn't work across threads, so how do you

      that it is best left to specialized tools like cpp:

      Yet another exhaustive discussion of exec and quoting,
      this time specifically in the context of Win 2K and XP:

      Controlling how panedwindows behave when the window
      is resized, and a discussion of whether they are geometry
      managers or not:

      A lively discussion of TIP #169: Add Slave Text Widgets.
      Of course, the text editor community is very interested:
      One result is the decision to call them "peers", not "slaves":
