Sorry, I missed your original mail.

I don't want to stand in the way of progress, but please be aware that
I really don't have any spare cycles at the moment and I'll be
extremely unimpressed if this ends up creating work for me.

I also think we need to be clear about what the aim is here, so we can
properly communicate that to maintainers of dependent packages.

Are you hoping:

* to have both wx3.0 with GTK2 and wx3.0 with GTK3 in buster?
* to only have wx3.0 with GTK3 in buster?
* to have wx3.0 with GTK2 and wx3.2 with GTK3 in buster?
* to only have wx3.2 with GTK3 in buster?
* something else?

And if you're intending we have two versions in buster, is one of them
a preferred one which maintainers should use that one unless they have
a good reason not to (e.g. "use GTK2 unless you need webview" or "use
GTK3 unless it causes problems for your app")?

I don't currently have a salsa login set up so can't directly comment
on the patch, but not sure why you configure GTK3 with:
