Yes, it works. I'm shipping a commercial application that uses 

There were some issues before involving fork/exec warnings in the 
console--there would be hundreds of such warnings during the program's 
execution. I could not find any impact on performance or stability, but 
the warnings were annoying.

Running a test build of my app with Tk 8.5.3, the issues seem resolved. 
Not sure who fixed them or when, but I'm glad that the warnings don't 
litter the console anymore.
