It doesn't exist (yet) but I've been wanting to play around with one
of the generic Tcl/Tk widgets for table/grid editing for this purpose
for a while. The most obvious candidate would be tkTable or TixGrid.

I think most of the stubs are in place for using these widgets, but
there may be dynamic linking issues, especially on Windows.

As usual, contributions are welcome, so if you get this sorted out,
please tell us how...

Have a look at
