I'm working mostly on Solaris now, but my Python work will also
have to run on a Mac and perhaps Win also.  I've heard a few
mentions now of problems with Tcl/Tk on the Mac (here and in
regard to IDLE).  I've yet to give it a try, but before I do,
what are the problems on the Mac side with Tcl/Tk?  And with
Tkinter?  Is it just the mediocre Tk look-and-feel?  Does
Tkinter not work at all on the Mac?  Are there particular
widgets that must be avoided?
