Try as hard as you can to get Tkinter running.

But if that fails, look at what the IDE is using. I believe the waste
module is still distributed with some versions of MacPython for OS X
(none of them recent). I don't think there's a whole lot of
documentation, but if Tkinter won't work, that's your only bet.
