As I said earlier on the wxWidgets mailing list, it should be possible 
to create a "wxAmaya" widget but I think there is a lot of work :
- Every Amaya commands should be disconnected from the user interface 
and maybe a wxWidgets classe should be created to register Amaya 
commands and be able to call it when something append.
- Some work should be also necessary to isolate differents view of the 
document and maybe create wxWidgets interfaces to manipulate documents 
and view ...
- Network code is not compatible with wxSockets ... it uses libwww and I 
didnt succeed to integrate wxSocket in Amaya :(
- Finally I think there is a lot of work around events and eventloop 
because If you want to create a Amaya widgets it supposes that Amaya 
should be pluggable into an existing evenloop ... This point is not easy 
I think.

To be short : Each documents are rendered into a opengl canvas which is 
named "AmayaCanvas" (inherits from wxGLCanvas), each canvas is embedded 
on a frame ("AmayaFrame"), each frame is embedded in a notebook 
("AmayaNotebook") page ("AmayaPage"), the notebook is embedded in a 
window ("AmayaWindow" which inerits from wxFrame).
