On MacOS, 3.7.0 is compiled for and the installer loads tcl/tk 8.6.8.  The same is true for the 3.6.6 64-bit installer.  Do tkinter and multiprocessing work together better with these installations?

I want to consider using multiprocessing and pipes instead subprocess and socket for IDLE's user-code execution process, started from and communicating with the initial tkinter gui process., which runs in the execution process to communicae with the gui process and supervise running user code, imports tkinter.  Besides which, users have to be able to import tkinter in their programs.
