code to stay stubbornly behind the times for no value. It's difficult
to believe that compatibility with Tcl 8.3 header files is still of

**USE_COMPAT_CONST**, **CONST84**, **CONST84_RETURN**.

# Compatibility

Any code that has not migrated to the Tcl 8.4 interface will
need to do so to work with Tcl 8.7.

# Implementation
