About documentation: The doc about extending the STk interpreter will be in
2.1.7 release (in its current state). I will post the 2.1.7 for Monday. It
will not be what I expect it should be, but it's a long time since 2.1.6 is
out and some new things and bug correction are present in 2.1.7.
I hope it will be the last release before 2.2 release.

Yes, there is a didactic (I hope so ;->) documentation about STklos+Tk in this
release. For now, it is only 20 pages long and should be longer than that.
This is a document where every concept is fisrt presented by mean of examples
and completly detailed after with a complete man page (mostly the Tk man page,
reformatted and adaptated for STk). This is a long work and I hope that some
people want to collaborate to this document so that we have rapidly a true
reference manual. Any person which had already dig into STklos code should be
able to make 3 or 4 pages of this document. The table of content is already
drawn, so we can probably have something for 2.2 if we are enough for this
Any volunteer?
