Re-opened for tweak.

This patch, to exit gracefully if ttk is not available, is the first step before using ttk in Idle.  Mark, a long-time tk/ttk expert and site/book author, has volunteered to help upgrade Idle with ttk. Please see "ttk in idle" on Idle-Sig list for general discussion and #24750 for the first substantive patches. The only reason I have not applied the ttk.Scrollbar patch, on that issue, is because Ned mentioned, on that issue, that the OS 8.5 python requires tcl/tk 8.4.  I strongly feel that this should not stop the use of ttk, but I an first doing a few non-ttk patches, including Mark's patch for #24745, before continuing.
