PEP 8 also says: "In particular: do not break backwards compatibility just to 
comply with this PEP!"  This is one of those cases.  There is a ton of code out 
there that depends on importing tkinter this way for the reasons Serhiy cited.  
Thanks for the suggestion but this usage is not going to change.
