Exactly. For example the button which has a 'standard' size, while GTK
uses size groups to obtain a similar effect... or borders which are
split between border and padding in GTK; most probably they have
equivalent capabilities accessed with different techniques.

Nope, no Mac available for testing... however trunk doc says:

(from http://docs.wxwidgets.org/trunk/datectrl_8h.html)

        wxDP_DROPDOWN a combobox-like date picker (not supported in mac version) 

I agree that testing is needed (maybe the doc is not up to date, and the
missing spin support on gtk is not documented either)
