I have submitted an update to Hardy. Once this is approved, it will be
backported to Gutsy and Feisty.

At the moment I am still working on the new release which can be
packaged for Debian. This version (the latest SPE in subversion) works
with python-wxgtk2.6 and 2.8, so there is no need for Debian to
provide a python-wxgtk2.8 package. If SPE keeps on being orphaned I
will try to package SPE myself, although it would be nicer if a debian
developer wants to adopt SPE.
