To be fair it was a slightly different question but the principles 
are the same.

These things are controlled by the Window Manager 
or the OS or the GUI system depending on the platform.

On X you can communicate with the Window Manager
(and Tkinter lets you ask which it is) and on Windows 
you can use the Win32 API via ctypes to set the icons.

I assume on MacOs you would use Cocoa from MacPython.
