A little late on this thread, but I think Craig has the best advice. 
Perhaps some advice on Python in a README file somewhere. The benefit of 
having someone install their own Python is that it may be quite a bit 
easier for their version (Linux). In FC4 you can just use yum to 
install, then it will automatically be updated.
Also to just restate slightly what Craig has said, you do not have to 
have Tkinter (or python-imaging) to use scripts, but only for those 
scripts which use Tkinter (or python-imaging).
