You may want to check out these universal Tkinter widget methods:

 w.option_add(pattern, value, priority=None)
 w.option_get(name, classname)
 w.option_readfile(fileName, priority=None)

While you are there, poke around the docs a bit because there is tons of good info you are going to need in the future. May want to get familiar with the new ttk widgets and themes.
