Reworked some old Jiumoluo packages

Its been a long, long time since I've done anything with the code for my translator's editor, Jiumoluo. It's all wrapped up in a starkit and it has various elements dating back to 1998 contained within it! Indeed, the GUI itself was originally built with VisualTcl. Originally I liked this program as it mean that I could get Tcl/Tk up and running quickly, the only downside is that the Tcl scripts generated are almost impossible to read. What I wanted to do was to recyle some of the custom dictionaries that I built. A generic reader has been scripted and load modules now built. Somehow, I think that the eventual Gnocl version of Jiumoluo will be a substantially slimmer piece of code that my Tk original.
