You either need to
* wrap all dependant structures (or what do you expect from sip, when
you call QxtScheduleView.delegate()?) or
* eliminate their use.
I'm not sure, if you can get away without wrapping
QxtScheduleItemDelegate but obviously, you cannot without Qxt::Timeunit
in a meaningful way.

Interestingly, I've a todo list item: wrapping Qxt, but free time
constraints prevented this from happening.
From what I've seen, QxtCore provides a lot of stuff, that is included
in the batteries or 3rd party library section of Python already, but is
probably necessary for the higher levels of Qxt. The most interesting
part is QxtGui, of course.
If you start such a project targeted on full support of Qxt somewhere on
a git or hg hub and being interesting in collaboration, let me know.
We could try to kindly ask Phil for running metasip on this, if we
provide the necessary preparation steps (the gccxml output at least).
Note, that for proper support, it is necessary to manage the timeline of
the library starting from a minimum supported version (e.g. 0.6), which
handles the evolution of the API over time.
