from Tkinter import *

The screwey thing about Fred's document using "from Tkinter import *" is
that there is an "Image" method in Tkinter that totally mucks up the PIL
Image module if you did an "import Image" prior to this...

Seeing as both are in Fred's court, it's kinda a bad idea...

I've battled the problem a couple times (but have learned my lesson) when
getting method errors for Image... really messed me up the first time.

| Hi all,
