If you were a bit more verbose about what you find "strange" about that,
that would be helpful.

The package changelog mentions that tkinter was added during fedora.us
package review. A brief look at Scribus reveals that the FontSampler
Python scripting backend uses tkinter. There's even a _missing_ dependency
nowadays (this output from FC4):

: You need to install Python Imaging Library (PIL).
: If using gentoo then you need to emerge /dev-python/imaging
: If using an RPM based linux distribution then you add python-imaging or similar.
: Script will continue without the font preview panel.
: Module ImageTk not found, font preview disabled

It's missing "Requires: python-imaging" indeed.
