Well, really: if you want to change something, file the bugreport, or 
get in touch with relevant maintainers. I'm not a tcl/tk/python expert, 
but if you think that your request is ligitimate and could be fulfilled, 
go ahead and discuss this with the relevant people. Discussion here 
might be interesting but doesn't bring much, not every package 
maintainer reads the list (unfortunately), and most of them carefully 
choose which threads they will follow. They definitely don't read 
threads with such a provocative subject (I'd just mark it as read 
normally as well) -- be explicit, using something like "build tcl with 
thread support" would definitely atract the relevant people more likely.
