This is how I've always pronounced it.
The toolkit in question is named ?tk?, which I have only ever known to
be pronounced ?tee kay?.
The rest of the word is an abbreviation of ?interface?.
So, to me ?Tkinter? is pronounced ?tee kay inter?.

Speed at the expense of clarity is a goal difficult to justify in
programming, and is even harder to justify in human speech. So, that
basis doesn't convince me of a useful pronunciation.
