Sorry, but as I wrote before I won't have the time.
But thinking about my experiences with tcl I want to
encourage people interested in enhancing webbot to take a look
at this. I found it really astounding how easy tcl integration
is and how it changed the way I looked at my programming
problems. Using tcl to build the higher level control structure
was a big win.
