INSTALL,lib/INSTALL.OSX,src/,survex.spec.in: Require at least
wxWidgets 2.8.0 - it was released just over 6 years ago now,
and the wx developers consider even 2.8 to be rather long in
the tooth. I haven't test build with wx 2.6 for more than a year
and it's no longer packaged for Debian. Dropping support for
older wx allows a number of workarounds to be removed.

20  too intrusive).

22- Redraw artifacts before loading a survey.
23- Icon for application bundle.
24- Custom cursors are quite small.
25- Put everything into the app bundle?

32- Not always as responsive as under X Windows.
33- Spurious menu bar items appear whilst application is launching.
