Re-reading PEP 434, I was mistaken to apply this patch to 2.7 and 3.4 without further discussion.  The PEP says "The PEP would apply to minor ..., but not necessarily to possible major re-writes such as switching to themed widgets ... ." 

Nick, should I post something on python-ideas or pydev, or continue here (moved from #24750) about making the switch also in 2.7 and 3.4?

I believe it would be best overall to at upgrade Idle 2.7, but I will not cry if we stop patching it now. Ditto for 3.4, which will soon get security fixes only anyway.  I am ok with using ttk starting with 3.5.
