And for completeness there are a number of add-on modules in the standard
library that provide many of these extra widgets. Tix and the turtle module are
two examples. The standard dialogs etc are also in separate modules.

And there are several other add-on moduiles not in the standard library that
you can download that extend Tkinter even further.

This is all designed so you only need to use the bits you actually need.
