New submission from Edd Barrett <vext01 at gmail.com>:

I notice that pypy needs a threaded tcl:

    $ ./pypy-c /tmp/world.py                                                       
    Traceback (most recent call last):                                              
      File "app_main.py", line 72, in run_toplevel                                  
      File "/tmp/world.py", line 28, in <module>                                    
      File "/home/edd/research/pypy/lib-python/2.7/lib-tk/Tkinter.py", line 
1017, in mainloop
      File "/home/edd/research/pypy/lib_pypy/_tkinter/app.py", line 378, in 
        raise NotImplementedError("TCL configured without threads")                 
NotImplementedError: TCL configured without threads

This error is produced when running the hello world example from here:

cpython is happy to run this program with a non-threaded tcl.
