I think a version of Tkinter packaged with a distutils setup script is
the best answer for Unix platforms. As a Linux user, I do *not* want
to install a second copy of Tcl/Tk.
If we have a distutil-Tkinter, e.g.
then a user can download it and run "python setup.py install" to build
a Tkinter against their installed version of Tk. This will be
straightforward on many Linux systems, because they ship with Tk
