There is a system that seems quite good called edas (short for
EDitorial ASsistant).  It's written in Tcl/Tk (it requres versions
7.3/3.6, but could be ported to 7.5/4.1 in the near future, if the
auhtor or someone gets around to it.  Anyone interested in a Tcl
learning exercise?)

You can get edas from a Tcl archive
