Thanks. Most of this is either a) dealt with in the most recent version 
of tcltkgrass for GRASS 5.7 or b) related to scripts that have not yet 
found their way into the CVS. Should I resubmit the latter?

I am hoping to get set up for CVS access very soon so that I can make 
updates more quickly.

I believe Radim answered this. I guess it stays this way for now at

I can do this. Is there some other kind of descriptive modifier that 
ought to be added?

These were copied from the original GRASS 5.0.x menus. This seems a 
good moment to improve them. I'll do something like this.

I can do that. It will take a bit of time, but is a good idea.

I don't understand this. Is there an authors 'function' to call here? 
If not, perhaps it can be added to the 'about GRASS' file for display. 

I can send a diffs file of these changes or wait and upload them myself 
when CVS access is set up. Your (plural) preference.
