Python builds link with a specific version of Tk.  The python.org 64-bit 
installers for OS X link with a framework Tk 8.5, like current ActiveTcl 
8.5.x and the buggy Apple-supplied system Tk 8.5.x.  You can install 
both ActiveTcl 8.5.x and 8.6.x on OS X.  The python.org Python will 
automatically use the ActiveTcl 8.5 once it is installed.
