Something like a list of STk 2.x to STk 3.0 porting hints would help me
tremendously. I decided to move my masters degree project to STk 3.0 and
the going is a bit rocky.

Right now when I try to load the file (which worked under 2.x) I get a
never-ending string of warnings about "&" being undefined while it appears
to recurse infinitely (not sure about the recusion -- but it uses up so much
memory/CPU that it's hard to get it killed).

I did get a smaller program to run without errors, but some of the Tk widget
behaviors have changed, so it doesn't work correctly.

It looks like switching over to STk 3.0 is going to be much harder than I
