Before 6.3.0 is released I'd like to finish off this wish:
Lat/Lon locations should format the Map Display statusbar x,y string into
45°59.9999'S 170°59.9999'W, not as decimal -45.999999 170.999999.
(I had previously committed code to reformat non-lat/lon coord text to a steady
'%.3f'; I just left lat/lon as '%.6f' or so but feel that's unfinished)
I have an idea or two how to do this slightly more efficiently than the
suggested code in the wish report (ie a few less lines in the mouse movement
update loop), but maybe the CPU overhead per mouse movement isn't as bad as I
expect and I'm stuck in a 4MHz 8086 mentality.
Feel free to have a stab at it if you like; I filed it as a wish as I was
having trouble finding the time to implement it, but didn't want it abandoned.
By the same token, I'd like it to be in 6.3.0 as that may be the last chance
for new TclTk features to be widely used.
There remains an unanswered question if "\xB0" produces a degree symbol on all
$ echo puts "90\xB0" | wish
