I agree that we should mention in the news file that Apple's version of
Tk 8.5 in Snow Leopard causes problems with IDLE.
W.r.t. Tk 8.4 vs. 8.5: the 2.6 binary releases will be linked to Tk 8.4
because of two reasons. Firstly all 2.6 releases upto now were linked
with Tk 8.4, and secondly IMO it is important that IDLE.app works out of
the box on all supported OSX releases.
I'm willing to review patches for 2.7/3.2 that enable shipping two
copies of _tkinter.so in the installer and automaticly selecting the
best one at runtime (that is, ensure that import _tkinter imports the
8.5 version when that is available and the 8.4 version otherwise).
