No, I don't have a version of GRASS that support wxPython and the new
GUI, yet. Just never had the time to get that new stuff running.
I am waiting for the wxPython stuff to stabilize and reach beta level,
before I put lots of time into doing this. Right now, it's hard for me
to judge where the new GUI is headed and what would be the best way to
integrate GEM-generated menus ...
