I second this motion.  We really shouldn't be in the business of
maintaining our own custom version of wxWidgets.  I relaize macos is a
problem child for wx but we should be helping ourselves by getting wx to
accept and maintain any issues that have not already been fixed
upstream.  Hopefully the next release of wx will be a bit more usable on
macos than the 3.0 branch and that the current situation of maintaining
our own wx branch for macos is temporary.
