On Windows, the easiest way to install Tile is to grab it from
ActiveState's Tcl distribution
(http://www.activestate.com/products/activetcl/) and then place it with
the Tcl/Tk bits that come with Python. The Tcl/Tk build for Windows that
python.org provides doesn't ship with Tile. You'll also have to install
the Tile wrapper at the site I referenced earlier in your site-packages
