Tkinter newbie question

So I've written my first GUI Python program (everything else I've done
for three years was CGI or automated stuff).  Very vanilla so far.  I'm
looking to do a little more, so I look at the Tk docs.  The question is,
how do you get from Tk to Tkinter.  For example, I want to place my top-
level window.  I see Tk_MoveToplevelWindow(), but I don't see how to
use it from Python.  Or maybe I can't.  (Hard to believe, but since I
see no call to it from _tkinter.c ???)

So, is there a general way to know what to do after you've found a Tk
function that you want to call?
