Thanks!  I basically have it under control now, see:

In particular, I defined set-wm-attributes to make the window full
screen.  I wonder if that would be a useful addition to LTK.

Currently I have the following issues:

1. I can't make the border disappear around the canvas.

2. If I go near the top/bottom of the screen, or move around too much
with the mouse, the script crashes with the following message:

"The value 0 is not of type CHARACTER."

and I get a debugging window.  Suggestions to resolve these would be
appreciated.  Also, comments on the code are welcome, I figured things
out by reading the source.

But LTK is truly amazing!  I wrote this application in about 30 minutes
and it basically does what I want it to do.
