Just to clarify this...

The next version of SIP v3 is likely to be 3.10.1. SIP v3 will be supported in 
the following way...

- bug fixes that affect PyQt

- enhancements to ensure that it will always be able to build PyQt (but not 
necessarily implement newer features).

It may be that there is never a v3.11.

I will continue to support SIP v3 in this way for the forseeable future to 
accomodate commercial customers stuck on versions of Python prior to v2.3.
