Ah, I see. The more I learn, I guess PyQt isn't as automated a wrapping as I 
had originally imagined. I thought that just about every class was available. 
Reading deeper into the code, I notice things like Qt Properties aren't 
available directly. I assume once SIP 4 solidifies this will become easier? 
As far as SAX support goes, it might be convenient to have, or at least 
mention the exclusion in the docs. Looking at the huge(!) map of classes in 
the Qt doc, I must imagine providing all that functionality is quite a task. 
Is there anything not implemented that hasn't been because no one requested?
