It's a common misconception that Wing is based on wxPython.  It's actually
based on GTK and we use that theming mechanism.

That said, wxPython is based on GTK on Linux so there may be a way to get
it to use GTK themes there.  But I don't know how.  I'd try asking on a
wxPython list since that would have more people likely to know the answer
(or at least where to look).
