I'm not saying when PyQt for Qt 4 will be released. Previously I have said 
that I only support final releases of Qt, ie. I wouldn't start until 4.0 was 
released. The process tends to be time consuming - to the extent that Disney 
funded the initial development of PyQt v3 in order to speed it up.

That said, I now have tools to help automate the process and I'm considering 
supporting (at least partially) a Qt 4 pre-release - no promises though.
