and if the similarity between 'tk.foo()' and 'ttk.foo()' still looks
confusing for you, you could simply do 

import Tkinter

instead of 

import Tkinter as tk

and you have "Tkinter.foo()" which can hardly be confused with "ttk.foo()"
(in fact I personally prefer the latter, because "import Tkinter as tk"
leaves us with a "tk" module alias that resembles too close (for my
taste) the Tkinter widget's "tk" attribute.

There's nothing disgusting about it [the Companion].  It's just another
