Wm - Tix's addition to the standard TK wm command.
The capture and the release methods change the
toplevel attribute of Tk widgets.
How these methods interact with perl/Tk's class hierarchy is not yet clear.

the Tk::Wm methods, however a captured window still will.
It is likely that Capture and Release will be developed which
will "re-bless" the object into an appropriate (perhaps dynamicaly created) class.
(A released Label might make a good candidate for an Icon.)

- Makes the non-toplevel window specified by $widget into a toplevel

into a toplevel widget, but it can also be used on any
non-toplevel widget (e.g, button). The newly-converted toplevel window
is automatically mapped to the screen. To prevent it from appearing in
the screen, you must call withdraw immediately after calling
