No support for newer image formats

Tkinter does not natively support image formats such as JPEG and PNG. The PhotoImage class of Tkinter can read images only in the GIF and PGM/PPM formats. Although there are workarounds, such as using the ImageTk and Image submodules from the PIL module, it would have been better if Tkinter natively supported popular image formats.
