This patch breaks converting any filetype other than PNG, which seems a
worse problem than requiring an X display, especially since the latter
can be easily worked around with xvfb like so:

xvfb-run img2py input.gif output.py

So I've reverted it in the latest wxpython3.0 upload.

I think this could be fixed by using wx.Image instead of wx.Bitmap, but
I'm not confident about making that change so close to the release
freeze.  I've sent a patch upstream for comments though:
