Python 2.3.1: idle requires tkinter

After upgrading to Python 2.3.1, I  noticed that the program called idle
bundled  with  Python  since  2.3  did  not  work  properly.   In  fact,
py23-tkinter is needed for proper operation.  As py23-tkinter depends on
python,  either idle  should be  removed from  standard Python  dist, or
py23-tkinter should  be bundled  with it.  The  problem is  that tkinter
depends on Tk, and that Tk depends on X11.

Any comments?
