I'm working to migrate all reverse dependencies of wxwidgets2.6 to
wxwidgets2.8 and to get wxwidgets2.6 removed before wheezy.

The upgrade to dh_python2 for wxwidgets2.8 was non-trivial, so I'd rather
direct my efforts towards migrating dependencies rather than patching a
package I'm intending to get removed.
