The bottom line is: Tkinter is currently broken -- as in, it's not 
thread-safe (in both Py2 and Py3) despite being designed and advertizing 
itself as such.
All the fix options require some redesign of either `_tkinter', or some 
of the core as well.

So, I'd like to get some kind of core team's feedback and/or approval 
before pursuing any of them.

The options are outlined in https://bugs.python.org/issue33257#msg316087 .

If anyone of you is in Moscow, we can meet up and discuss this in a more 
time-efficient manner.
