How about unbundling ext/tk from Ruby repository?

ext/tk is a bundled extension library for GUI programming with tk.
It is introduced in 1999 and long maintained with CRuby itself.

But nowadays its maintenance is not so active.
Moreover ext/tk is not the de facto standard over Ruby GUI though it is bundled for 14 years.
(maybe because tk is not de facto of GUI toolkit)
GUI libraries for Ruby should compete in the wilds.

So I propose unbundling ext/tk.
It should be another repository for example on github and people should install it as gem.

How do you think?
