FWIW, i'll throw in that i gave up using builders with tk - it became as
easy/easier to write the code directly as use a builder and try to fit it to my
XF was very handy intially, because i could play with the packer dynamically
and learn all its little quirks; but now, having sussed the packer and with the
addition of the gridder (and even the new useable placer), and a few procs of
my own for repetitive stuff (like double scrollbars), builder programs aren't
worthwhile. for me.
