[PyQt] Python Commander in PyQt?

Is there a two-pane file manager (Total Commander style, not necessary
to be 100% compatible) written as a PyQt application?
Google found me a wxPython PyCmdr which (sight unseen) may be a fine
program, but since I want to tweak it some, and I prefer PyQt, I thought
I'd ask here for a possible starting point.
What I actually want to do, I think, after staring at Firefox AddOns for
HTTP Commander, which would allow synchronization between files on a
computer and a web site. There are FTP programs that do a fine job of
that, when FTP access is available.
But I have a situation where FTP access cannot be granted, and if it
could, it couldn't handle the job anyway, because of the way the web
site stores the data. But CGI programs can finesse those differences,
and so a CGI interface, likely a RESTful one, will be developed in
conjunction with HTTP Commander. What the web site does under the
covers really won't matter to the program, as long as it emulates a
tree-structured file system, and can supply directory data, download
"files", and upload "files". So the program could be used as a
replacement for those FTP programs, but its real power is if the storage
format on the Web site is unique.
I'll start from scratch, if necessary... but would appreciate a
higher-level starting point if findable and available.
