Your question has been asked several times over the years and the short
answer is that porting the modifications to the new wxWindows does not
seem worth the effort. In particular, getting eventspaces working
properly is quite difficult (if you're not familiar with eventspaces,
see http://www.ccs.neu.edu/scheme/pubs/icfp99-ffkf.pdf)

We have tried to respond to these kind of complaints by improving the
interface layer directly, ourselves. The Mac OS X version, for example,
has seen lots of improvements over the last year or so.

So, in that light, do you have any more specific comments about it's
