class HList in is missing the method
info_bbox(); though according to the Tix website, it
exists and should return a list of coordinates for the
bounding box of the list entry whose path is passed
into the function as an argument.

I added the following bit of code to my python 2.4.2
final release build (, line 961) and find that it
seems to work just fine.

    def info_bbox( self, entry ):
       coords = self._w, 'info', 'bbox',
entry ).split( ' ')
       return map( int, coords )

I've attached the modified file for examination.

Should info_dragsite and info_dropsite be added too ? (I guess I would
be too lucky to get an answer after ~3 years). I'm preparing a patch but
I don't tend to use Tix, so it would be good if someone else wrote tests
and at least tested the patch too.
