 Yes, but I don't think I'll be able to port all the features of
Mathematica to tcl:)

also, it always pays to do a trip to the Tk/Tcl wiki.

I did find a nice Map <> implementation a while
ago, and one could probably use lambda functions as well, but for me it
feels a bit hackish.

Hmm, that *is* an interesting idea. I've never need to interface C and
mathematica, but I'll look into it... Starting with CatDCD.c
