I hope this isn't a dumb question...
Since TCL is designed to support multiple versions installed
simultaneously, and there are already quite a few Cygwin packages that
have dependencies on various versions of libraries, why not have a new
TCL85 and EXPECT545 packages? Just leave all the other packages that
depend on TCL8.4 alone? Perhaps Mr. Miller would volunteer to be the
Cygwin package owner for these two new packages. Even if he were to
abandon support, the situation would be better since we'd have >much<
more modern versions of TCL/EXPECT for Cygwin.
