wx is also slowly moving towards supporting templates in the codebase.
The culprit was always the decision to support broken compilers, VC++6
in particular. This is slowly fading, though the old API is still
standard and a define (configure option) is needed to enable the new
API. In particular the 2.9.x series support typesafe templated events
instead of the old macro-based event tables.
All this diversity also makes configuring the wx codebase a daunting
task, another reason I'll be glad to see the python port of BB launch.
