As far as PyKDE, Phil gets the credit for creating a really nice 
install system (as well as sip, PyQt, the original PyKDE, etc). 
That was largely the problem with PyKDE-3.8, as the rest of the 
code hasn't changed too much (except for some sip enhancements 
Phil coded for PyKDE).

This is really a nice platform - I wish I had some time to work 
with it :) (or :( )

QXEmbed was causing build problems on some platforms - not sure 
of the details, but I imagine I thought no one was using it 
anyway and there might have been some questions about the code 
being usable in PyKDE in the first place.

I'll try adding it back in if you have a use for it. You could 
try sticking the old qxembed.sip in kdeui/ and adding a %Include 
qxembed.sip to kdeuimod.sip.in.

Let me know if you need it, and I'll work on it.
