almost...  I have built an interface to the Tktable widget.  I will
try to upload a package to the devel section of CRAN later this week.
Two problems will for now remain (and have kept me from uploading it

- Tktable is not linked against libtcl.a and thus will not load into R
  in some architectures (i.e. it doesn't work in Linux, but does work
  in AIX).  You can patch Tktable and rebuild it rather easily though.

- There is no interface from R's variables to Tcl's.  By this I mean
  that I do '.Tcl(paste ("set", tcl_varname, R_value))'.  What I
  should have are direct calls in C to copy R's vectors (matrices,
  whatever) into a Tcl array...
