Question from somebody who doesn't know wxWidgets: if the update from
one release to the other is so simple (at least, you make it sound very
simple, and #1019416 has no blocking bugs, so I reckon everything
works?) then why is this not packaged like pretty much any other library
with an unversionde source package and an unversioned -dev binary
