The namespace resolution may affect some of our code, and the tilde 
change definitely does. It wouldn't surprise me if there are some more 
incompatibilities not listed on that page. We'll probably go to 8.7 
first for base.

For ports, I would guess we'll need to keep Tcl 8 and 9 available as 
separate ports for quite some time.
