OTW: "The most profound testament to Tcl's maintainers
trustworthiness is
that they named the Tcl testing package 'tcltest' instead of
'testtcl'." - Roy
Keene

Thanks to Arjen Markus for his mostly-weekly Wiki reports:
Spring (or autumn) has just begun and now we are already preparing
for
(Google's) summer (of code). Well, it doesn't hurt to look ahead - if
you can.

- An old page resurfaces: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/1322> deal with a
performance question - [catch] or [info]? There is a clear winner.

- The tree control widget has been updated. See <http://wiki.tcl.tk/
6064>

- Inlining your source code could be advantageous for deploying it.
There are less files to worry about. This little program does the
hard work for you: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/28159>

- Leveraging gnocl widgets so that you can explore what gnocl is
all about ... <http://wiki.tcl.tk/28158>

- Sometimes you need to store a lot of data in a compact way.
Is Tcl a suitable vehicle to do so? There are plenty of
solutions to chose from - <http://wiki.tcl.tk/4558> and
<http://wiki.tcl.tk/28148>

- Some confusion over how hard or how easy it is to add Tcl/Tk
to a C program. Do we really not have a proper tutorial for this?
