Usually there will be a link to a couple different builds on
wxpython.org.  I can see where it would be pretty easy to grab the wrong
one.

I usually keep /home on a separate partition.  That lets me wipe / and
do a fresh install without affecting my personal stuff.  I will say that
using apt/yum to upgrade works pretty well these days, as long as the
jump isn't too far (i.e. more than one major release).  Still, I too
prefer the fresh install, just out of paranoia probably.
