Tk::Xrm - X Resource/Defaults/Options routines that obey the rules.
Using this modules causes Tk's Option code to be replaced by versions
which use routines from <X11/Xresource.h
> - i.e. same ones every other
X toolkit uses.
Result is that ``matching'' of name/Class with the options database follows
the same rules as other X toolkits. This makes it more predictable,
and makes it easier to have a single ~/.Xdefaults file which gives sensible
results for both Tk and (say) Motif applications.
?) ignores optional
priority completely and just does XrmPutStringResource()
Perhaps it should be more subtle and do XrmMergeDatabases()
This version is a little slower than Tk's re-invention but there is
more optimization that can be done.
