Looking at pydoc.py, it looks like the Tk is purely optional...and isn't
called from the interpreter. (I'm not a core dev, though, so take that with
a grain of salt.) However, can't you just strip out the gui function and
the one place in the file where it's called?
Again, not a main Python developer, so don't take this too seriously!
