I should have qualified that with 'out of the box Fedora 2', since the WX
included in the official install doesn't even import at all.  This kind of
pissed me off (at Fedora, for shoddy testing), that they'd ship a fairly used
library which can't even be _started_ (meaning, 'import wx' failing).

It annoyed me b/c for deployment on multiple systems, being forced to track
separate builds from multiple repositories is just a recipe for headaches.

But this is not a thread on all the _other_ things that don't work at all with
FC2, so let's just not get started :)

I didn't mean to disparage the WX team.  I'll just patiently wait for things to
catch up.
