Exactly :)

No, now it's integrated in the testing branch, but won't show up until
you switch on the CMake flags related to scripting.

I've used lp:~miguelangel/kicad/scripting the last few days for
texting the wxPython concept carefully (it was breaking things around,
but it isn't now)

They include the full wx in wxPython because a) it seems it's really sensitive to version differences and b) it needs some addons anyway (like scintilla and other contrib stuff); pyshell works so I suppose that it's installed correctly.

That's good, and it seem to keep quite up-to-date with the development
branch of wx.

If you branched from testing-commiters you're already have it in your sources.

> As for the keep-both-the-control-file-and-the-scripting-support I don't see it necessary: since there is anyway a (simple) syntax involved a user could be usefully copy a sample python script exactly like it would copy a sample sexp control file. I think, since the only thing I know of python is that you can't match code blocks with % in vi :P:P (that's an unforgivable thing coming from a C/LISP background...)
