Okay, I was planning to just use the freewx git where current wxWidgets 
and wxPython live, although I haven't run that by Olly yet.  Olly are you 
okay with that?

Uploading to experimental sounds like a reasonable plan.  Let me clean up 
the package a bit and then share it with you.

One blocker at the moment though - the version of sip that is currently in 
unstable is broken and cannot build wxPython4.  I've already reported a 
bug (#887564) about this, but there's now a new upstream release with the 
fix, so perhaps I can pester the maintainer into fixing it.
