Note to users of the python.org Mac OS X binary installers: if you have 
installed earlier preview releases of Python 3.4, be aware that the 
batteries-included built-in Tcl/Tk library support introduced in 3.4.0a2 has 
been reverted in 3.4.0b1 because it was found to break some third-party 
packages.  As is the case with earlier releases of Python, if you use the 
python.org 64-bit installer for OS X, you will again need to have a compatible 
third-party copy of Tcl/Tk 8.5 installed, such as ActiveTcl, to avoid 
the problematic system versions shipped in OS X 10.6+.  See 
http://www.python.org/download/mac/tcltk/ for more information.
