It is not the Tcl/Tk itself I am worrying about, but the graphics hooks to
the MacOS one must provide:
What is called "MacOS X" is actually five entirely different OS's running
side by side, all having in common that they are run by a Mach 3 kernel:
Classic MacOS pre-7
Carbon MacOS 8-9
Cocoa Actual MacOS X
Now, one wouldn't want to implement graphics hooks for the pre-MacOS X,
because that is too low level. It makes better sense doing it for Cocoa or
Java. One might do it for X-windows, too, because there are non-Apple
X-windows servers available for MacOS X.

Thank you for pointing this out. So what is the state of art of the Haskell
interpreters? Will there be a Haskell interpreter available in the future?
Will that be GHI (GHCi)?
