I always clean out /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework and
/Applications/MacPython-2.3. I wouldn't
clean out the Tcl and Tk frameworks, these aren't installed by Python.
You're right about the
symlinks in /usr/local/bin (python, python2.3, pythonw and pythonw2.3)
but I tend to forget
about these myself:-)

You have to install Tcl and Tk yourself. But: if you haven't installed
and you try to install Tkinter what should happen is that "show hidden"
automatically becomes checked, so you actually see the AquaTclTk
and if you select that package you get instructions on how to install
But if someone actually wants to test this: yes please!
