That's a complete distortion of Python 3.0's mission. Python 3.0 breaks
backwards compatibility only where there exist good reasons to do so. As
Guido put it in a recent Python-3000 post, "Python 3000 is boldly
choosing to be backwards compatible, except in cases where a real
benefit can be obtained by being incompatible."

So, unless you can make a case that a real benefit can be obtained by
removing Tkinter, it'll stay.
