Since Python is the language in which you're implementing your 
application, to me it makes sense to use the facilities provided by the 
language and its builtin libraries before using a third-party library 
such as Qt. The exception being where the use of some non-overlapping Qt 
classes (e.g. the GUI stuff) requires the use of overlapping Qt classes 
(QThread I believe might be one).

I personally find the Python data structures far easier to use than any 
C++ based structures.
