vtk and wxWindows

If you working under Unix with GTK, I may be able to help.  I've created a
new wx class, wxVtkPanel, which contains a vtkRenderWindow and Interactor.
The render window (which is GTK-specific) is largely based on the
vtkGtkRenderWindow written by Matt Howlett.  I intend to write a Win32
version, but haven't done it yet.  I haven't thought much about a Motif
version, although I'll probably try it eventually.

The interactor, vtkWxMappedInteractor, is not platform-specific.

If you're interested in this code, I can send you the files.
