There are certain things that Tkinter can do, such as have a dialog
which makes a number of simultaneous selections.

The down side is that the syntax for Tkinter is more obtuse than Python
by itself, so I think what we might consider advanced Python. The
CalendarWizard is an example, and while the dialog is nice, the
structure of the script shows the complexity that Tkinter throws in there.
