Difficult to say for sure. I am about to start the merge of Tcl/Tk sources,
until I see how messy that gets it is hard to guess at the scope of the 
problem. But I would like to have something by the conference.
Apart from the Tcl/Tk merge the main issue will be scheme to 
convert from UNICODE/UTF8 to the encodings of the various fonts a platform
may have. I am not yet convinced that the scheme Tcl uses for this is "right" 
but im-porting that is one option, another is making do with true
UNICODE encoded fonts for near term.
