> The patch appears to change it to 2 in tkinter/

This is for development only. You can apply the patch and test how new mode 
affects IDLE or other applications.

All Tcl_* functions are Tcl C API functions. Old functions work with strings 
(char *). Modern functions (have "Obj" in a name) work with specialized Tcl 
objects (Tcl_Obj *).

> I near as I can tell, the only differences between PythonCmd and

I'm not sure that I understand all you mean, but in updated patch the common 
code are extracted to separate function.
