more details... Its gotta run on a mac... and speed is important.

I have had some really bad experiences with Tk/tcl but
I have heard it is getting better... supposedly preformance
on PCs has really jumped. But the current mac versions
are deathly slow... afaik.

Since it needs to run on a mac I am really limited...
since the target market for my product runs about 50% mac
ie. web design houses.

thanks for the ideas though...
