  It's obvious I haven't been paying attention, so much for my
retirement... :-)  That's awesome actually, and it does look active.

  The main thought was more towards an actual design and clean APIs, and
assuming Tcl/Expect was unmaintained, needed to use something that'll be
around for a few more decades. Assuming Tcl/Expect are maintained
forever, that's a bit of a moot point. Everybody has always complained
about using Tcl in DejaGnu. Python is just much more commonly used in
the current century.

  Right now working through patches is probably more important. :-)
There's zero patches on the DejaGnu savannah site, so I'd ask anybody to
submit them so I don't have to dig them out of email archives.
