Hi Bruno.

Wow this is real good!  Thanks for doing this.

Just one comment:

The GUI also has a run-time dependency on tcllib.  It is only required
for the handling of JSON data, and it is in the TODO to make the GUI
using libjson-c as poke does, but in the meanwhile tcllib is needed.

The Debian package with tcllib is `tcllib'.
Don't know about Red Hat.

Other than that, this is OK for master.
