You don't need to. As a user, you install tk7.6 or whatever; on the other
hand a package maintainer, having first determined that his program will
work with any version of Tk, can simply depend on wish. One assumes someone
maintaining a package that depends on Tk will be familiar with it to at
least that extent.

Although it would clearly be better to have more obvious names, and
tk-interpreter seems like a perfectly good one, it is not terribly important
for virtual packages to have obvious names.
