[R] Tcltk question for R people

Curious to know whether the TK extensions “Tktable” and “Iwidgets” will be 
included in future versions of R (full installation).  These are key 
components of GUI construction and would be very useful in my current 
R-tcltk endeavors.  I realize that I could just install a version of 
ActiveTcl, which includes the extensions; however, my goal is to eventually 
distribute my work keeping installation procedures at a minimum.

I do have one question for individuals working with R and Tcl/Tk on Windows 
XP.  Has anyone experienced corrupted GUI’s (lost widgets) after invoking a 
tkpack command (e.g. missing buttons).  My web searches on the subject leave 
me wondering if it’s a Windo$e problem.  Any ideas?

Thank you,

PS: Inclusion of the Tcl/Tk within the R 1.7.0 installation has been greatly
