I'm more than happy to add a contrib directory to PyQt. Two things I would 

- please supply documentation in some form (comments in the code is fine)

- consider adding it to the WIKI at python.org instead/as well.

I don't have any feedback on how well used the WIKI is, but it seems an 
obvious place to put useful stuff and advertise PyQt at the same time. (Which 
begs the question why don't I link to it - so I'll sort that out.)
