Not me. Anyone who expects his source tree to be kept on the system
doesn't gain my trust. Jeez, I hope you don't have daughters at a
sensitive age (I know you have grown ones). But your level of trust
is a bit more than mine. :-)

I will dig up evidence. I'm thinking that if anything in the header
matches anything in the library file, it would be broken if the
header was not available to packages linking to the Tcl library.
