I sympathize, and agree that PackMan is confusing. Some clarification
from Jack about how the how repositiories about python.org will be
maintained, or not maintained, would be helpful.

Since I do a lot with Tcl/Tk, I would also be willing to look into
putting together a package installer of the tkinter module and of IDLE.
That would be useful to me for several reasons, not the least of which
is that I actually find IDLE to be a useful editor. Since it's packaged
as an applet, that would be consistent with the other stuff I maintain.

What I don't know how to do is build _tkinter.so. Any advice on that front?
