I seem to be stuck with some issues of Idle on macs.
The page
seems to talk only of Tcl/Tk versions 8.5

Macports seem to have at 8.6

With a direct download of Tcl/Tk there are some security warnings that prevent it from installing.

Using whatever Tcl/Tk comes with python means many things dont work:
- The options menu wont open
- Various keyboard shortcuts dont work

Any suggestions/directions?
