I'm embarrassed to say that I was just following a lot of the other
tutorial materials that I have read.  But to be honest, I can't really
say WHY using a class structure is desirable.  I have a vague
intuition that the program will be more maintainable that way, but I
can't clearly articulate the reasons.

But you're absolutely right -- this is just the kind of issue I wanted
to cover in "Thinking in Tkinter".  Now I'll have to try to come up
with an answer!

I think you're right.  A good idea.
