At first glance, for _gtk_rc_context_get_default_font_name wx cvs has a
reimplementation for it, while gtk_accel_group_detach still seems to be
in use. Anyhow, I agree that we never-ever should also start to patch
gtk; wx patching is nightmare enough.
For LinuxTag's sake, I don't have the time to check this further. But
after that I'll even see if I can reimplement some wxrc stuff to work
around wx cvs weakness about fonts. Any investment on the wx side in
this topic is just a waste of time.
