Ah, I didn't appreciate there were rdeps which would need to be updated for this too. > Updating from grass 6.4.3 to 6.4.4 is more in the realm of > possibilities, so we'll need to look into backporting the wxPython 3.0 > changes to that. I've been working on a script to assist updating code to work with wxPython3, which might be helpful here if the python code in grass has changed a lot between 6.4.x and 7.0.0 such that backporting the changes is difficult: http://anonscm.debian.org/gitweb/?p=collab-maint/wx-migration-tools.git;a=summary I tried it on the 6.4.3 package, and with a bit of manual tweaking the startup wizard works, but the GUI after that doesn't. I'll send the debdiff of that in case it's useful.
