I find this workaround really unnecessary for such a minor issue.

Current solution may be not aesthetically pleasing for some, but I find
other alternatives worse. Users are not that stupid to understand the
need to install Tk, if they do find the need to use this interface.
What is more important, you wouldn't notice this at all, if the script
used the reexecution trick which is usual in TCL community.

As for "no unexecutable files in bin" requirement, it is rubbish, in rough 
We installed and continue to install packages that do not satisfy this 
Somehow it never bothered anyone before today.
