That is kind of what I'm looking for here. A stable version of PyKDE/PyQt that 
will be available and working on whatever the current stable release of KDE 
is. Updates to this "KDE synced version" would be limited to bug fixes. If 
KDE 3.4 shipped for example with a couple extra APIs and PyKDE didn't support 
them, it seriously wouldn't bother me too much. I don't think that is real 
problem. What is important is that people can always run their Python+KDE

Perhaps a large part of the solution would be stable releases of PyQt/PyKDE 
that matched the release/maintainence schedule of KDE itself. I suspect this 
would suit the distro packages better too.

Phil and Jim are always free to develop and release stuff outside of the 
schedule, but the important thing is that end KDE users would have a base 
stable version always available.
