The tests are just a matter of checking sys.platform at the
appropriate point -- since the target platforms ATM are only
Windows and Linux a simple == "win32" or != "win32" depending
on which requires special treatment (usually Linux/GTK) does
the job.

I really should stick at least some of this stuff on the wiki
(http://wiki.wxpython.org/index.cgi/wxPython_20Platform_20Inconsistencies)
-- for that matter, I should refine and bug-report the ones I
haven't already.
