Hi Stani, Ron!
Very pleased to meet you in direct e-mail conversation :-)
Extremely useful development tool you've created here!

Fine. I think this part will be very interesting for Ron Lee.
I think I'll attach him a carbon-copy of this...

IMHO an update to a new version of the wxgtk wouldn't start other
packages to be broken, would it?
So I think we should the Debian-Team (Ron) decide what to do - Joey told

Joey asked me just a few moments before, if I would like to do it.
Indeed I am not shure if I can manage that (would be my first .deb) -
but I'll try my very best if you want me to do it.

Thank you for your work, I just started using your tool and I am amazed
when I use it.
