At least, not without adding code to use whatever interface(s)
Tk/wxPython use. AFAICT, Tk doesn't use any standard interface (at
least not on X), so we would have to either take the code which Tk
uses and add it to lib/driver, or make lib/driver depend upon Tk.

Even that might not be sufficient; Tk just needs to get a reference to
the font which it can pass to the window system; GRASS needs the
actual glyph bitmaps.
