I'll do it. Frankly speaking I don't like to do, 'hate' is better word
to describe my opinion.
But somebody need to make tkinter docs consistent.
I doubt if that work can be done by some script well enough —
docstrings should to be reformatted according
to Sphinx markup.

Please after I will finish initial transform help me to make this part
of documentation as good as Python Docs should be.
I think the excellent narrative Python documentation makes a big deal
in python wide spreading.
I remember docs for 1.5. Not so bad, but it's incompatible to docs for now.

Also, please help me to make hg clone for tk documentation located in
I tried to:
andrew at tiktaalik2 ~/projects> hg clone ssh://hg@hg.python.org/cpython
repo created, public URL is http://hg.python.org/sandbox/tkdocs
abort: clone from remote to remote not supported
http://hg.python.org/sandbox/tkdocs is empty.

Looks like I don't know Mercurial well enough to to it.
When I'll get online clone of cpython available to myself as well as
visible to everyone and write accessible to python committers
(I hope you will push updates as well) — I will start to do.
