Awesome, thanks for checking.

I think it's reasonable to just upload libwx-perl now - I believe
3.0.2-1 is a pretty safe update, and we can always make a new upload
restoring the workaround to libwx-perl in the highly unlikely event
there's an RC issue with 3.0.2-1 which can't be fixed for jessie.

And if #758165 isn't full addressed, knowing sooner would improve the
chances of being able to do something about it, and having it auto-built
on all architectures is the best way to find any remaining issue.
