Just a few notes:
* The tkscript example seems to have lost all indentation, and I think
that the info relating to 1.6.0 can be safely lost by now.
* Tktable can be handled more easily using callbacks in R-1.7.x. I
have an example somewhere on the laptop, I think. Interfacing to Tcl
arrays is quite a pain as I'm sure you already found out; something
I hope to straighten out in the future.
* You're describing the pack manager as superseded by the grid
manager, which I think is not quite right. Both are useful in
different contexts; some layouts are really awkward to lay out
on a grid, so knowing the pack manager can pay off.
Re. examples and screenshots, you might be better off just taking
examples and doing your own screenshots. Things get more consistent
that way. A few examples of how things look like in the Linux
interface might be useful, though (maybe Aqua too, anyone?)
