The Tcl core has made a lot of the functionality in Tcl-DP
easier to implement in raw Tcl, but there is still some
advantages that it provides as a package.  I would be happy
to add you as a developer on the SF project (tcldp) if you
would like to work on it.

There was an unreleased 4.0 version that did a lot of the
Tcl-based work ... I don't know what the status of that is,
but Gerald Lester is one name I remember associated with it.
