Ok...thank you folks that you at least involve the author of xcdroast

Thank you for the patches, I will include that in the next version of
X-CD-Roast.
Expect a major code cleanup and IDE support -> I will also release the
next version as binary and source-distr. I hope that the bin-version
(contains statically linked tcl/tk/tix) makes installation much easier.
I will need than a volunteer who tests the new code and supplies me with
the alpha-binary. But I don't think I have the new version ready within
the next 2 month (I am quite busy now).
