I don't believe it, you overestimate the willingness to change.
BTW: 5.1.x will always be a development series.
The next stable GRASS series will be 5.2.x.

Even most GNU/Linux users are very conservative.

We are happy to have i18n work started.
I still think it should be mostly folded into 5.1.x.
But right now it looks like stuff will go into 5.0.1 or 5.0.2,
if it is stable.
This means we have to find an acceptable way to add i18n.
Requireing tcltk81 is not acceptable.
A simple preprocessing step as a crude solution which I already
suggested or a stub function like Glynn suggested is easy enough to do.
So if you really want i18n make sure that we can do it without
breaking tcltk 8.0.x.
