You can try it here, without installing the package python-tk. And since
you need to install python-tk, there's no problem at all installing package
wxPython to achieve the same. Or kdebindings-python and using pyQt. Or
installing another RPM package -- using Apt, so you don't have to worry
about dependencies -- with a different toolkit.
I've seen SuSE, Mandriva and Conectiva with separate packages for TKinter.
I believe there are more. Unless, of course, you're first installing a
personalized Python -- and loosing this "advantage".
