Just a reminder that you should *not* depend on the Apple-supplied Tk
8.5 in OS X 10.6. That was the first release of Cocoa Tk and it has
proven to be almost unusable, at least with IDLE and some other
Tkinter-based apps. Install a newer Tcl/Tk 8.5.x, like from ActiveTcl,
and use a python that links with it, like from the python.org
installers. The ActiveTcl installer also installs "teacup" which allows
you to easily install additional Tcl packages.
