Trolltech decided that they don't modify the PATH: they provide a BAT
file (qtvars.bat) that modifies the environment for you if you want.
It's a reasonable choice, on their side. The point is that PyQt4 can't
run without the correct environment. I guess this could be documented or
better checked in the installer.

mingwm10.dll? Still there, still needed if you default to the dynamic
multi-threaded runtime (which is a reasonable choice). I guess it's
related to making exceptions cross DLL boundaries, but it's a question
for the mingw list.
