... other issues:

- Qt is more popular than WxWindows because it is commercial:
    - they can support their product;
    - they can affort to sponsor their product;
    - people won't have to install yet another library;
    - it is binary compatible with previous versions also.

But I think WxWindows developpers can affort to completely rewrite their
engine if a better syntax is available. Yours to decide.
