This is exactly what _we_ don't want. People will keep using the broken Wx
UI if this happens. Besides, it's insane to depend on both wx->gtk and the
whole qt4, and all the media libraries from the same source package.

If you want Wx, ship it as an external plugin, built from a separate source
tarball. In fact, I think we should do that for _both_ Qt4 and WxWidgets.
