b. comment out import of saxlib (was unable to find it used anywhere)
c. s/gStartupStatus/assert log.debug/
d. wx-2.8 required for Designer (wx.aui)
e. AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'keys'
Fix: return the result dictionary constructed in getAllConnectionParameters,
short of updating base/document.py to stop using deprecated functions.
With those changes, Designer loads and displays a window,
and opens a legacy .gfd file generated by gnue-designer-0.5.4,
but fatal errors on forms/samples/masks/masks.gfd,
maybe per the inherently-needed feature updates.
