So far I remember correctly the KiCad project was switching to OCC
because the OCE variant was lagging behind some or more wanted features.
I'm using mostly the explicit set up of build options and do not rely on
used default values, so the Debian packages using OCC for more than a
year. And this also for backported versions.

I've configured the build of the current 5.99 version for experimental
since a few weeks, and wxpython 4.0 is used here also like done for the
current stable version since a long time. Or I miss your point.
