Isn’t there a Tcl port in fgb’s contrib?  (That means you do 
`9fs 9pio` (read /rc/bin/9fs) and look at 
/n/9pio/contrib/fgb/root/sys/src/^(lib cmd)/^tcl.) (Also, why?)

APE was not yet thrown out of 9front.  Generally bugfixes are good.

Yep, APE is old and quite unmaintained.  I recommend looking at 
https://git.sr.ht/~ft/npe .
