Which is why it would be nice to get rid of all the globals in Ltk,
push them down into some object (which could then put back into a
dynamically bound global *TK*, of course), so you could have multiple
Wish's active at once at the same time, possibly to different displays.
Any of the CLs that Ltk runs on that have threads should be able to
do that...
