If called the method, the feature cannot be deactivated. 
The method replaces some commands on *TK INTERPRETER*.
So, some mega-widgets may be able to benefit by Tile extension. 
But, it is very risky because Tile widgets are NOT full compatible 
to standard widgets.
It means that the method may make some other mega-widgets not work. 

In the near future when Tile extension will be one of the standard 
library of Tcl/Tk8.5, the risk may not exist or the feature may 
be able to be deactivated. 
Before that, the dangerous method cannot be called by default.
