I also use wxFormBuilder, but I use XRCed from wxPython 2.8.6.x to
generate an application Skeleton from my .xrc file. This version
creates explicit attributes for all the visual elements that have a
name in the xrc file.

Unfortunately the latest XRCed version requires you to annotate the
xrc in order to obtain the same effect which is not only tedious, but
as far as I can tell it also makes it impossible to round trip between
XRCed and wxFormBuilder.
