It's a little bit more complicated. In Qt there is "void QColor::rgb(int
*,int *,int *)" and "QRgb QColor::rgb()". Python doesn't have pointers
to the first method is implemented to return the 3 int values as a
tuple. Unfortunately this means that the two methods now have identical
argument signatures (they both take no arguments) and means that the
second method (the one you want to use) can never be called.
The solution is to give one of the methods a different name in PyQt (eg.
call the first one rgb_tuple()), but this will potentially break

I'm happy to have the information included on the homepage if somebody
wants to collect it.
