I have python embedded in my app, and I wish to use my application's
window as the parent for some dialogs created (and coded) in python
land. Is there a way to get the main widget in C++ to be the parent of

I need my python dialogs to:

1) Be modal w.r.t my app window,

2) Not show up in the task bar.

I think setting the parent to my C++ window will fix these. Also if I
can work around it, and disable the task bar entry and make the dialog
always-on-top, that should work too, but won't be as elegant.

As of right now, the from qt import * line makes a qApp of its own, in
addition to my C++ qApp.
