Looks like the author forgot to put dashes in front of the switch names
(e.g., the option in Tk::Label is "-width", not "width", and there are a
number of other instances of this.) IIRC, this used to not matter much;
I guess the Tk::* module maintainer tightened up on the rules. For those
who are interested, the tarball containing the three fixed files is at
<http://okopnik.freeshell.org/misc/mgm-fix.tgz>; I've already filed the
bug with Debian and sent the diff.
There's also an "mgm-doc" package, which is reputed to have the "HTML
documentation" for MGM - and contains the original website. Is that
cool, or what?
Hmm, dot-brian. Is that a new TLD, a CSS class, or a way of hiding
yourself in the TAG directory? Inquiring minds want to know. :)
