Dunno -- probably just that cgf's tuits are in _extremely_ short supply.
 I think the last word was this:

IIRC, there was talk about the death of insight (upstream), and we were
kinda in limbo about that, and then it started to look like insight
(upstream) would /not/ die, and we went into a holding pattern...

Basically, the question of tcl/tk is tightly coupled to gdb/insight and
cgf's plans for the latter -- which is in turn strongly affected by
Keith Seitz's plans for upstream insight.
