I guess we need to ask benjamin.peterson or michael.foord. I just
copied the hack from unittest/__main__.py. I believe this is done in
order to convince optparse to print "python -m modname" rather than
"modname.py" in the python -m modname -h output. Of course, tkinter
does not support -h (yet?), but I thought it would be better to
maintain consistency in how __main__.py is written.
