Looks too nice to suggest they use an unpatched version.
I see no technical problem, nor with policy at first glance.
But i dont't understand your comment in #199822:
The pgadmin team uses a patched version of wxWindows 2.5 that won't
integrate debian for the moment. As debian packages must be build
dynamically we can't upload pgAdmin3 packages until wxWindows 2.5
packages become available. Ron Lee who is responsible of the wxWindows
packages is aware of this and will provide packages as soon as he thinks
that it becomes stable enough.
Ron Lee will provide 'officially patched wxWindows'? If your package is
good, go and integrate debian libs later, else wait for them to come.
