yes, i use wxExecute (the c++ version).
you can also capture the output with it but i don't know how this works 
in wxPython. sometimes the two APIs are quite different.

i think there are examples of wxPython and opengl if you download the 
wxPython-Demo & examples. i've only tried pygame/SDL & wxPython which 
works fine.

your project sound interesting so far. what do you try to achieve? just 
being curios...
