wxPython 4 is wxPython Phoenix which is a complete rewrite of the code
that uses SIP instead of SWIG. It is also not API compatible with
wxPython 3.0, so it would probably need to be packaged separately and only
packages that have been ported to the new API would be moved over to use
it. However, I would think that Debian would want to wait until an
official non-beta release has been made. Phoenix is still in beta.
