[R] Floating windows in TCLTK

Dear anybody dealing with TCLTK on R

I'm trying, without any success, to get a simple TCLTK window to remain
floating on top of the RGui and RConsol windows when the later have focus. I
cannot find reference in the TCKTK documentation and fear that I'm missing
something quite fundamental. 

My objective is to make a simple button populated menu to invoke R
functions. I wish the TCLTK menu to remain on top so that I can manually
invoke a sequence of functions without restarting the TCLTK menu after each
invocation. Some of the R functions used have screen interactions in the
form of locator() and identify()

Any tips or abbreviated code snippets would be very much appreciated.

I'm running R in Windows 2000
