I was kind of interesting in compiling it against the native tcl/tk,
but unsure about changing tcl to enlarge the UI widgets, think it's
not bad? i know nothing of Tcl, but if it's probably somewhat obvious
to find widget sizes maybe i can manage, just probably takes time to
go thru it all and find everything?  cvs AccessGrid at least looks
a-ok in OS X, widget sizes all fixed.  and think QuickTime broadcaster
is a workable solution for transmission?  i haven't had a chance to
test it yet beyond local stuff, vic on my PC can pick up QTB's
multicast video transmission, about all i've been able to check,
anybody else experiment with this?  all i have is an iSight so not
much options it seems
