Yes, in my SoC application I listed the following stdlib modules (for
both sound and images): Tkinter, Tix, wave, ossaudiodev, winsound,
aifc, audioop, sunau, sunaudiodev and imageop.

There are also a few Mac modules that can probably use the new
classes: videoreader, PixMapWrapper and some Carbon modules.

IRIX goodness: al, imgfile, jpeg and gl, but I can't test these. BTW,
will they be still here in Python 3.0?
