Hmm - I'm currently wondering if we should enumerate all the
committers to that part of the wx tree (but not the bakefile, as we
wouldn't use it), and see if we can get permission from the rest of
them to relicence the code.

That should make life much easier, as we could just add the code to
our source tree, and use our own build system.
