Add the unittestgui test runner, built with Tk, to the Tools directory.

It would be good to have this script included in the bin/ directory of the Mac installer as well.

The unittestgui runner can be found at:

The code is a modification of the original unittestgui by Steve Purcell and updated for test discovery by Mark Roddy. I have asked Mark if he is willing to help maintain the code and asked him to complete a contributor agreement.

It will need documenting, or at least pointing to in the documentation, probably with a note recommending Hudson for production use - unittestgui is a tool for beginners / convenience.

Note also that Brian Curtin has contributed a patch to make unittestgui Python 3 compatible. This has not yet been 'merged upstream':

Attaching patch that adds the unittestgui to Tools/scripts.  Also has updates to the unittest documentation which includes a note that this tool is for beginners and a CI system should be used in general.

Committed revision 87685. 

It would be nice to see this included in the Mac OS X and Windows distribution, but I guess that applies to the *whole* Tools/ directory.

FYI, as of 3.2rc1, Tools/ is now included in Mac OS X distributions in /Applications/Python 3.2/Extras/.
