because changing this at this time will cause mysterious
and hard to trace errors for everyone using PIL together
with an external plugin, while keeping things as is won't
hurt anyone.

after all, Georg's crashes came *after* he'd changed
this (and thus ended up with a mismatching tkinter).

PIL 1.1 will have an entirely different memory layout,
but that's another story.
