Please go ahead, Phil.

Better supporting another sexy development strategy by far outweighs some  
minor hassle with backward compatibility in this respect.

[Some cursory christmas thoughts/wishes, weather is asking for it:)]
Since I joined this project on mid of july, I'm pleased to realize the 
speed of development without big talk. In fact, I would love to see a
bit more cummunication on these advances<33% wink>.

The biggest gift seems to be Phils effort in order to wrap Scintilla, 
which made it possible for Detlev to enhance eric to a very promising 
IDE in just adding 372 KB Python Source. It has grown to a size of 760 KB
of sane an (mostly) easy to understand and i18ned code.

I cannot imagine a better demonstration of the raw power from a develop 
environment. Simply incredible, guys!

Phil, I would love to see you tackling some entries from the sip TODO. 
When browsing through sip's code last time, me badly realizes my knowledge 
holes on the flex/yacc front, but OTOH, the strong feeling, it would be 
worth the hassle to fill them. This may reduce the call for that somewhat 
crazy idea of coupling several c++ wrapper libs for one toolkit in one 
project. If only we could combine these efforts in order to make out 
world a bit more pythonic tomorrow ;-) This is by no means intended as
an offence against the Boost.People. Please beware!

Although PyQt is carried by a comparably small cummunity, it is a very
nice place to be. Thanks, guys!
