I regard installation as comparable to sanitation services
(garbage removal) in the real world:  an enormous enabler
of comfort, theoretically inchoate, culturally underappre-
ciated--and not my specialty.  My ignorance about
installation is even more massive than the one I have about
art, for truly all I know about installation is what works
for me.

My personal belief, in fact, is that there are *no* experts
in installation.  It's turtles all the way, for everyone
I've asked seems to have a mentor whom he trusts beyond his
own experience.  Elementary graph theory questions how this
embeds in a finite population, but all I can do is report
my own observations.

I don't know off-hand who's responsible for Tk installations.
If you want to track down the guilty parties, I'll be happy
to help.  In regard to Python, of course, The Guido knows all.
