This is simply our way of handling conflicting scripts in REQUIRES. wxPython is 
used globally in place of all wxWidget ports since it's a super set of all of 
them. Most of them probably work with wxGTK as well.

When you check REQUIRES yourself you can pick either or and can guess that 
python apps may indeed require wxPython because of the python bindings. When 
you use tools that use REQUIRES for automatic dependency resolution, that's 
the price you pay for convenience.
