No - but (if %ConvertToSubClassCode is done correctly in PyKDE) 
then if:

     parent = KHTMLPart ()
     someObject = QWidget (parent)
     part = someObject.parent ()

'part' should be a KHTMLPart instance in Python.

It should work for anything in the QObject hierarchy, which 
includes all QWidget descendants, and anything in QEvent. There 
are a dozen or so other class/subclass hierarchies I haven't 
provided code for but can if necessary.

Is there a case where it's not working?  (requires PyKDE-3.7-4 or 
3.8rc2 - not in earlier releases)
