I've grabbed wxPython. I have merely installed their binaries in the
python install, and I've grabbed their dev files and moved the
/include/wx/wxPython directory to my local wxWidgets build which gets
built as part of the KiCadWinbuilder script. I assume that on Windows
we will need to compile the wxPython source as our wxWidgets libs
instead of a native wxWidgets install.

Best Regards, Brian.
