I use the Python 3.4.1 installer from

The Windows installation comes with Tcl/Tk version 8.6 which has some new features (compared to 8.5) that are very important to me.

But the Mac installer does not include Tcl/Tk and the page:
"The Python 64-bit/32-bit Mac OS X installers for Python 3.4.x, 3.3.x, 3.2.x, and 2.7.x dynamically link to Tcl/Tk 8.5 frameworks."

I tried to download and install ActiveTcl 8.6.1 for Mac, but Python does not use it...

Can anyone help me make Python 3.4.1 use Tcl/Tk 8.6 on Mac OS X (10.9.2, if that matters)?

Does anyone know why the Windows installer brings the newest version of Tcl/Tk while the Mac installer remains with the previous version? When this is planned to be changed?

Maybe this is not the right place for this kind of question... can anyone suggest a better place so that the question has a chance to be read by the person who is actually creating the installation packages? Should I try to send this as a bug to bugs.python.org?
