@Terry: This only applies on the Windows release of Python.  On both Linux and FreeBSD, you can wind up with Python 2.7 and Tk-8.6.x by default in some instances:

# pkg info | grep python27
python27-2.7.13_1              Interpreted object-oriented programming language
# pkg info | grep tk86
tk86-8.6.6                     Graphical toolkit for Tcl

That's a FreeBSD-11.0-RELEASE install on a laptop.

Is there guidance anywhere on which Tk version a given Python version prefers to be used with?  E.g., is Python 2.7 only supported against Tk-8.5.x, leaving 8.6.x users on their own?
