A bit of clarification:  early Tkinter did not
use native Windows widgets.  Now Tkinter does
(certainly with Python 1.5 and later).

HOWEVER, while Tkinter uses Windows widgets for
what it does, it doesn't offer all Windows widgets
that a Win* developer might expect.

I summarize:  for Tkinter, what's there is native,
but not everything native is there.
