If I read the patch correctly it replaces the existing 8.4 support by support for 8.5. That would not be acceptable because it would result in a non-functional version of IDLE for anyone that hasn't installed a custom copy of Tk.

The "checkForAppKit" function doesn't work with the system version of Tk that Python currently links to.

Does the patch work with the system version of Tk 8.4 on OSX?
