I spoke too soon, its just the documentation needs an update the
newer widgets are supported - at least paned window and Spinbox
are, I didn't try any others. But you will need to look in the Tcl/Tk 
to find out how to use them!

Here is the best site I know. It doesn't give Tkinter examples
but does give Perl examples, which are pretty similar in style.


It also looks like we will get the new themed widgets in Python 2.7
and 3.1 which means Tkinter will no longer be the ugly duckling
of Python GUI toolkits! Hooray! :-)
