Not presuming to speak for anyone, least of all the ActivePython product
manager :-)

I don't think it will be "fixed", as it is not considered "broken".  It was
an explicit choice to leave out Tcl/Tk.  And my recollection is that the
"feedback" address sees more requests for wxPython than Tcl/Tk.

We make it pretty clear Tcl/Tk is not included - I assume that everyone who
cares about that simply uses BeOpen releases or source tarballs.

[When I say "wont be fixed", I mean it is unlikely to appear in the core
ActivePython release.  It almost certainly will be supported as an add-on,
whatever that turns out to mean exactly ;-]
