There are a couple of aspects to this:
A. Who can report on when Tkinter as a whole or IDLE
in particular will be Tile-ified?
B. You want to learn about "the option database" <URL:
For even more immediate encouragement, try
root = Tkinter.Tk()
root.option_add('*font', ('verdana', 30, 'bold'))
Tkinter.Label(text = "This is some text.").pack()
C. B. presents a per-application approach. As Tkinter
is a well-behaved X11 toolkit, you can also read up
on the X11 option database (start with `man xrdb`).
Jeff and Fredrik are likely to expand these remarks. The subject
deserves its own Wiki page ...
