I looked in my Tkinter book, and it says that if the widget has the
"takefocus" option set to true, the widget is placed in the tab group
and will get focus when they are tabbed to. I assume that this means
if you set the PMW widgets' "takefocus" option to false, they will be
skipped over since they won't be in the tab group.
