I changed title to match what might and, I think, should happen.

My take: x.y is normally followed within 2 years by x.(y+1), which on Windows includes the latest tcl/tk.  So, on Windows, anyone who wants the new tcl/tk can upgrade to the newer Python.  For 2.7, there will be no 2.8 with newer tcl/tk.  So we updated tcl/tk once already within 2.7 and it seems time to do so again.  If there are more 8.5 bugfixes before the last 2.7 release in 2020, we should do so a third time.
