When you use other modules like PIL with Tkinter, it is best to give
Tkinter a namespace.  This way you keep track where things are coming
from.  I prefer 'import Tkinter as tk' then it is much simpler to use
'end' or 'nswe'.  Otherwise you have to use tk.END or God forbit tk.N
+tk.S+tk.W+tk.E -- see what I mean?
