It absolutely impossible to remove Tkinter IMHO (it has been 
part of stdlib since like forever and people expect it there; 
its removal would be betrayal on the level of switching = to 
:=), I have my doubts about IDLE though. I know, the same 
argument applies, but really, does anybody use IDLE for 
development for long time, what is its real value for the 
community? Although, even this argument is questionable, because 
Python has some affinity with the learning, and IDLE is a nice 
for first steps nibbling into Python.
