Todd, is this easily doable? Could you write an embedding_in_tk.py
example along the lines of embedding_in_gtk and embedding_in_wx?
The FigureCanvas derived instance in backend_* is meant to be a widget
you could plug into a GUI, but I notice you took a different tack in
backend_tkagg. The idea behind this is that users may want to embed a
figure as part of a GUI window, eg in a widget container, without
necessarily bringing the toolbar along or using the whole window.
Would this be an easy refactoring of backend_tkagg?
