It is probably possible to build

python36-wx and python37-wx together with the same source package.
The only files of the binaries they seem to share are


that can be put in a tiny shared common subpackage

python38-wx will need python38-numpy that is not yet available.

Maybe it is also possible to build python27-wx, but I doubt is is worth
the effort as we should move faster on python3.8

- why 4.0.7.post2 and not 4.1.0 ?
- have you a BUILD_REQUIRES list ?
just to avoid a try loop to test my idea
