>   version to document, and what version-dependent differences to note
> * The process takes time (and I did one of the very simple pages)
> * Maybe docstrings in the Tkinter module are more appropriate
> * What about the other things we'd like to say (I think a sample

> * Can wiki pages be renamed later, or is it manual cut&paste followed

>   this page could belong.

1.  I consider this valuable,
2.  even though I *bet* it was costly in
    terms of your time.
3.  I have counter questions:  how about references
    on that page to <URL:
    http://www.pythonware.com/library/tkinter/introduction/button.htm >
    and <URL: http://wiki.tcl.tk/button >?
4.  Your questions are good ones.  I want to come back to them.
