IMO, Tk's _advantage_ is that it's there already. As a standard
component, it works well for typical simple GUI applications (thus
satisfying "batteries included" IMO), and it's self-contained. So I
would say it's at _no disadvantage_ to other toolkits.
Alternatives like PyGtk and wxWidgets are easily available and provide
some degree of cross-platform support for those who need something
Is there some reason why you can't require users to install a toolkit
more suited to your application's needs?
