[PyKDE] Good news/Bad news

The bad news is I made a dumb mistake when regenerating PyKDE for KDE 3.4.0.
In the project file, I set the previous version number equal to the new
version number, so no new stuff showed up. It looked like an error in the way
enums were versioned, so I set off debugging that, and found the dumb error.
It turns out about 15% of files have new methods (quite a few, even for a
major release) and there are a number of new classes. (I had indicated
previously there were almost no changes).
The good news is in two parts: first, there's a very small amount of code to
be handwritten for new methods. Second, adding the ability to automate
%Feature stuff in .sip files, which looked like a huge undertaking in some
convoluted code, turns out to be amazingly simple - I already had most of the
code in place to handle it, and just had to finish up a few things to make it
work, and fixed another stupid bug in the process.
The end result is that I should have a new PyKDE release ready in a few days,
including KDE 3.4.0 support. I'm testing it against 3.4.0rc1, but I don't
expect any big changes in kdelibs between that and the final release. I
expect to release a snapshot and allow a week or two for bugs to show up, and
then a final release after that.
