In the case of wxPython 2.4 it's not only a packaging bug, though. When
you build wxPython 2.4 from sources wxPython.h is not installed
automatically. It still is the preferred way to access the objects at
the C++ level.
When I added the --use-wx-python-swig-hack flag I considered whether
setup.py should set it automatically when using wxPython 2.4. It would
have taken even more time to implement and I had already spent more time
on than I wanted to, and it might make setup.py a bit too smart. OTOH,
as it stands Thuban is a bit harder to build with wxPython 2.4. We
should perhaps consider making setup.py smarter in this regard for the
