the script a lot better!

Yeah, that's the culprit.  No official stable version for tcl 8.6 at the

The last tagged version is from 2008 but their are only few changes.

But, what to do with the stable package?
* use fixed revision to not get unwanted/unreviewed commits?
* variation: fork the repo, tag the current version and then use this?
* use last tagged version and patch the incompatibility?
* variation: fork the repo, cherry pick only the 8.6 fix, tag and use this?

Thank you
