Exactly the way I did it... :-) I split the Tcl part of mtcltk into 
tcl.m, while for Tk I use a tk. .. tree, with tk.m serving as an 
interface to allow a single handy `tk.' prefix, while Tk subcommands 
like `canvas delete ...' are directly called from the submodules, i.e. 

My aim is to keep close at the Tk syntax to allow reuse of the Tk docs, 
to have a guide for further commits, to ease translation of Tcl/Tk 
examples to Mercury, and to give Tcl/Tk'ers an easy start.

Of course, building an interface to GTK is a lot more demanding...

All the best,
