I don't know, really. I myself got by with Ousterhouts' Tcl/Tk book and the
documentation you mention.

Definitely, as soon as there is a final distribution.

Not that I know of. There's little mac-specific code in the Tkinter module, so
as soon as anyone makes the packages useable for Unix or Windows Python it'll
probably run on the Mac as well. There is of course the question of how useful
such things are: especially incrtcl seems to be mainly interested because it
addresses shortcomings of the language tcl, and those really shouldn't bother
Python users of Tk...

I don't know, really. But if you're willing to give it a try: all Python
sources and projects and such are available...
