Phil's most recent two snapshots take care of some problems with 
virtual methods that return a reference and some type name 
errors with namespace'd stuff, eg something like 
sipNamespace::sipClass_method vs sipNamespace_sipClass_method 
plus some other related generation problems (and sipNamespace:: 
doesn't and shouldn't exist). The snapshot before the 12/31 
snapshot fixed the namespace stuff; the ref stuff should be 
fixed in the 12/31 snapshot itself. 

Some of the more esoteric stuff doesn't get caught until PyKDE is 
built against a new sip version, as PyQt doesn't use these
