AFAIK 3.1.1 (actually 3.1.2 is the latest development release) isn't
readily available on most linux distros.  Do we really want to ship
windows builds with 3.1.2 and linux builds with 3.0.4?  What does this
mean in terms of crash reporter support not to mention any bugs
introduced by the 3.1 branch of wxWidgets.  As much as I would hate to
do it, we may have no choice but to factor out wxCrashReporter from the
development branch of wxWidgets if we want to support it across all
platforms.  Does wxCrashReporter in 3.0.4 have good enough linux support
that it would make sense to create our own PKGBUILD for wxWidgets 3.1.2
on msys2?
