[New-bugs-announce] [issue5961] Missing labelside option for Tix option menu (fix included)

New submission from Cary R. <cygcary at yahoo.com>:

The Tix Optionmenu is documented to support a labelside option that is
used to specify where the label should be relative to the selection.

I have verified that adding 'labelside' to the static_options when
calling the base constructor (TixWidget.__init__) located in Tix.py line
1185 (for both 2.5.4 and 2.6.2) fixes the problem.

TixWidget.__init__(self, ... ,['labelside', 'options'], ... )

I am currently using 2.5.4, but a fix only for the 2.6 branch is
acceptable for all but my personal machine (which I can patch by hand).

I am not very familiar with how all this works, so if there is something
I can do from my code to add this option that would be nice to know.
