It seems that python do not compile with tcl 8.6. Here is a patch, done
by Adam Williamson, to add this version in the supported list. We are
using on mandriva since 6 months without trouble, so I think this is
safe to include. The patch is against version 2.6.3, but I can rediff if
needed.

This is a bit misleading. Python supports compiling with Tcl 8.6 and
Tkinter (and _tkinter) will work (or at least should work) with it, what
is not supported are tcl/tk versions below 8.3.1.

I'm ok with with patching setup.py to add this "support" for everyone
else, I have compiled python with tcl 8.6 before but didn't bother
suggesting this change in setup.py. Anyway, just came here to try to
clear this up and say there is nothing in python saying it doesn't
support tcl 8.6 (hope this helps anyone that got confused and thought
tcl 8.6 wasn't really supported by python).
