Those should be considered the minimum sip versiions for PyKDE - they take 
care of some quirks in PyKDE code.

The next version of PyKDE could be released in a day or two if anyone is 
desperate, but I'd just as soon wait for KDE 3.2.3, which, according to the 
plan, is due  end of May/early June.

The only thing new in the next PyKDE release will be some enhancements to make 
DCOP easier to use (code for packing/unpacking QByteArrays). I have that 
working in principle but I'm waffling on exactly how to implement it and 
which module(s) to put it in.
