  Description     : wxWidgets Cross-platform C++ GUI toolkit (wxPython binding)

wxWidgets (formerly known as wxWindows) is a class library for C++
providing GUI components and other facilities on several popular

This package provides a Python binding to the wxGTK library and the
wxPython runtime support libraries.

[To pre-answer the "isn't this already packaged" questions, we used to
build wxpython out of the wxwidgets2.8 source package (which actually
contained wxpython sources with an embedded copy of wxwidgets!)  The
wxwidgets3.0 source package is just the wxwidgets source, and we're
packaging wxpython 3.0 from a separate source package.]
