[PyKDE] Status of MacOS X Support

After much messing about I've come to the conclusion that PyQt cannot
support MacOS X for the time being.

SIP breaks the Python rules for extension modules in that it doesn't
export a module's API the way it is supposed to. Windows and Unix can
deal with this - MacOS appears to be a bit more picky.

The solution will be SIP v4 which will export a module's API according
to the Python rules.

There is no ETA as yet for SIP v4.

Thanks to those people who have been helping me out on this.
