wximgview is just C++ and wxWidgets (like 7.0's xganim), no Python
involved. wxpyimgview is a Python/wxPython version.

The C++ version may be faster; it may also be useful if using wxPython
is problematic for whatever reason. It can be disabled by building
--without-wxwidgets (which is the default).
