application look and feel right. For example the Tibco console: The
background seems to be plain white. Neither the pin-striped background
nor the (often critized) brushed-metal look is used. The form fields
are grouped by frames which look wrong (they could have more rounded
borders and normally have a pin-striped background in non-brushed-metal
apps I know). The two buttons on the right sight (both embedded in
their own bordered box) and the red background in the input fields were
the things that look really tcl/tk'ish to my eye.

for this kind of app - so I hope the developers do not take this as an
offense :-) I actually have never built anything using tcl/tk and
therefore cannot say how difficult it is or if it is even possible to
make those apps look more native.
