I quite agree.
I got the new distribution working - I did have the first version of 
2.3.4 not the fixed one.. so redownloading it solved my problems.

*However* - the new funky version closes the shell down as soon as a 
program has exited... the Tkinter distribution is (IMHO) still 
experimental... so we don't have a way of pausing the output of a script 
and actually viewing the result..

There was a hack to add raw_input on the wiki.....................
It would be a *really* useful feature - user interaction on the pocketpc 
is basically impossible without it......
