Yes, that would be possible, but I'd need to do a lot of file comparisons to
eliminate duplicate files in dev-lang/python.

Well, I'd like to have a decent implementation of python in the base distribution.
Personally, I like the "rebuild sys-devel/python if you need X support" solution.
If you like, I can build the python.tbz2 over here on the server, where I don't
have X or tcl/tk.
