I have made the assumption that I can delete it since I have never documented
it. This assumptions is probably the good one when you have a rather
documentation it is surely not realist when the the most common answer of the
author of the package is "Hey, look at the demos code if you want
documentation". Consequently, & has been put back in the relase (I will try to
not forget to document it :-)

This is Tk fault, not mine ;-)

It is hard in effect. Bindings are the most difficult problem. However, I
think that current solution (especially for closure callback) is better than
previous hack (especially closure callback). I was not reluctant to add
incompabilities in this version, since I knew that Tk already induced some
incompabilities, and that, consequently, some pieces of code must be
I will try to avoid them for next release.
