While I don't really mind if wxGTK and wxX11 get removed, there really is no
necessity to do so IMHO. They are separate upstreams with separate release
schedules (which came in handy already once in the past). If the maintainers
still feel like maintaining them and want to provide users the option to pick,
why not? For avoiding conflicts in dependency management? On slackware?
