Hi Peter,

That's good to hear.

Looking at a quick diff of my local version and 0.98, I have 3 bugfixes
and a new feature.

Bug fixes:

1) Completely changed how strings are escaped; many places did it
improperly (For an example, try making a TEXT widget and filling it with things like
newlines and ] and }).

2) Didn't build on recent sbcl due to exit/quit weirdness

3) The widget naming scheme eventually stomps on existing tk commands
if you create enough widgets (e.g. wm).

New Feature:

Accessor for "state" on ttk widgets; note this implementation depends on
spit-sequence; I can rewrite to not use that if you prefer.

Do you want these in 4 separate patches?  Should I just send the patches
to the mailing list?  Is there a version control repository with
something newer than 0.98 for me to base my patches off of?
