Thanks for the info. I'll probably just go for the Archive & Install  
route (knowing this is certainly overkill, as the overwritten /usr/ 
bin/wish8.4 is only a 3-lines script). Earlier this week when I last  
did that, I took care to note which software installers installed  
elements inside /Library/ or in hidden directories, and hence needed  
to be rerun after an Archive & Install. Actually there aren't that  
many of them: StuffIt, Windows Media Player, Adobe Reader, TeX and  
friends, DarwinPorts, QuickTime MPEG-2 component, RealMedia Export  
Plugin, NeoOfficeJ, etc. And now the SpotLight importers. Not that  
many, thus hopefully that shouldn't take too long.

Thanks in any case to Daniel for his work, since the Tcl/Tk Aqua  
distro included in Tiger is indeed based on one he prepared and  
submitted to Apple.
