Infrastructure work

   One of the reasons we never bothered with a shared build is that we
   currently rely on our own version of Tcl/Tk. It should not conflict
   with a pre-installed version.

Speaking of which, some thoughts I had yesterday on "big" infrastructure
work that really needs to be done:

	* Removing the dependency on Tix.

	* Removing the dependency on local changes to Tcl and Tk.

	* Making the extensions to the Tcl interpreter a loadable
	  library (ie. "hyper.so").

	* Making the syntax highlighters loadable libraries, too.

Thoughts?
