Subject: Labltk: Canvas item -state hidden
Is there any reason that Labltk doesn't allow to configure canvas items
with -state hidden (or with any state at all)?

After wading through the interface information, I came up with 
the following workaround:

let canvas_configure_item ?state widget tag = 
  let tk_widget = cCAMLtoTKwidget widget in
  let tk_state = match state with 
    | None           -> []
    | Some `Normal   -> [TkToken "-state"; TkToken "normal"]
    | Some `Disabled -> [TkToken "-state"; TkToken "disabled"]
    | Some `Hidden   -> [TkToken "-state"; TkToken "hidden"]
  (* Tk.Tkintf.cCAMLtOTKtagOrId doesn't quote the tag *)
  let cCAMLtoTKtag (tag : Tk.tagOrId) = match tag with
    | `Id i  -> TkToken (string_of_int i)
    | `Tag s -> TkQuote (TkToken s)
  let tk_tag = cCAMLtoTKtag tag in
  let cmd = TkTokenList [tk_widget; TkToken "itemconfigure"; tk_tag] in
  tkCommand [| cmd; TkTokenList tk_state |] 

But of course it would be nicer if Labltk would already support it :-)
