I did try wxPython 2.6.2 and ran into the same problem. When I launch
the application I get the typical dialog that says "ImportError: No
module named wxversion". When I'm using 2.5.3 I don't use wxversion,
and I get "ImportError: No module named wxPython.wx".

I also tried to use the advice in the py2app docs that suggest
pointing to the wx rsrc file in the frameworks variable in setup.py,
but that didn't help either (there's no rsrc file included with 2.6.2,
so I just tried this with 2.5.3).

So, my next logical conclusion was to try a newer version of py2app,
but if other people are having success with 0.2 (are they?), then it's
probably something else.
