Serhiy: question about tkinter.wantobjects.

ConfigDialog sets the font options of label font_sample and text text_highlight_sample with a font tuple such as font=('courier', 12, '').

In the test, I expected retrieval of the font option with
        sample_font = dialog.font_sample['font']
        hilight_font = dialog.text_highlight_sample['font']
to return tuples, but I get a string: '{courier new} 10 normal'. 

I checked and root.wantobjects() is returning the default True.  Should not the options be returned as tuples?
