#22 epydocgui from epydoc 1.1 breaks on current Debian/unstable


epydocgui from epydoc 1.1 currently does not run when
installed on any Python currently available from Debian
unstable/testing (tested with 2.2.3 and 2.3beta2+). As far as
I can see, this is due to a Tk-upgrade, which causes
naming of several keyword arguments to change, the one
in effect here is the parameter "col" to the grid function. In
order for epydocgui to work, I had to change all occurances
of "col" in gui.py to "column". After this change, seems as
though it works (not had any problems so far).

As I am not a Tk-expert, I don't know whether these
parameters have really changed names lately, or whether
it's a different bug in the Debian Python distribution.
