Where in the world is a description of pack() for Tkinter widgets? Is it 
some sort of general method for all widgets? I'm looking in a few docs that 
use it without ever saying where it is described. For one, 
<>. In the NM Tech pdf on Tkinter, 
it's not found anywhere. I see Universal methods for widgets, but no mention 
of pack(). package, packed, but no pack.

While I'm at it, what is w in the result of w = Label(parent, image=photo)? 
Just a widget pointer, address?
