If a biotech witness means anything, I have just two commercial examples 
recently: Partek is using Tcl for internal (user-available) scripting and just 
yesterday we had a demo in-house, by the author, of the PyMOL package, which is 
written using Tkinter and OpenGL. I do not mean that this would turn me to like 
Tcl/Tk, but this is the reality we face.
