Yes. My PyQt idiom for running a dialog is:

    dlg = WhateverDlg(parent)
        ok = dlg.exec_loop()
        if ok:
            # do things in here maybe

which isnt so bad.

There has been recent discussion on the python-dev list for syntactic support 
for this. http://www.python.org/peps/pep-0343.html
