There is very common error when user pass list instead tuple to Tkinter. Some functions accept both tuple and list, some functions reject list, but many functions silently convert non-tuple value to str (e.g. [1, 2] -> '[1, 2]' instead of expected Tcl representation '{1 2}'). The proposed patch adds support of Python lists in all Tkinter functions which accept tuples.

Sounds like a good idea to me. The code looks pretty straightforward as far as I understood it.
