No, his question is about a fundamental _tkinter.c inefficiency.
BTW, there is an incompleteness in the documentation on that page:
The documentation for after_cancel does not mention where `id' comes
from, and the documentation for after() does not note the most
important usage of after(), namely
id = after(ms,func)
>From the Tkinter.py source code:
def after(self, ms, func=None, *args):
"""Call function once after given time.
MS specifies the time in milliseconds. FUNC gives the
function which shall be called. Additional parameters
are given as parameters to the function call. Return
identifier to cancel scheduling with after_cancel."""
