New submission from ChrisRands <>:

Issue arose from this SO post:

The tkinter documentation suggests:

from tkinter import *

But this obviously contradicts PEP8:
"Wildcard imports (from <module> import *) should be avoided"

Is tkinter a valid exception or is this a documentation bug?

The commit of this line to the documentation is >10 years old (at least Python 
2.4 I think):
