I want to add that the star import is more convenient when you experiment with 
Tkinter in REPL. You don't know what names will be needed when import Tkinter.

The interpreter core has a special support of Tkinter. You don't need to run 
mainloop() for updating GUI in REPL. So this is a supported case.
