Did you know that a wrapper for use with Tk 8.4.x is located here?

http://tkinter.unpythonic.net/wiki/TileWrapper

This does require a separate installation of the Tile libraries, but 
those can be obtained from ActiveState.

I use this wrapper myself on OS X with a commercial application I 
develop, and Tile makes a big difference.

(I maintain and update this wrapper at the wiki, but am not the original 
author.)
