some days ago I was porting a Python-Qt3 application to Python-Qt4, and
I used QCustomEvent. 

I copy-paste some part of code:
In thread:

class MyEvent(QtCore.QEvent):
        def setData(self,data):

        def getData(self):
                return self.data

def sendInformation(id,s,gui):

In main thread (to receive the events):
        def eventFilter(self,object,event):
                #TODO: save in a variable the message number and compare event.type with this variable!

                if (event.type() == QtCore.QEvent.Type(QtCore.QEvent.User+0)):
                        QtGui.QMessageBox.warning(self,"Error reading/writing files. Check permission of destination directory")
                        return True

                if (event.type() == QtCore.QEvent.Type(QtCore.QEvent.User+1)):
                        return True

                if (event.type() == QtCore.QEvent.Type(QtCore.QEvent.User+2)):
                        return True

bla bla bla...

I _think_ that works fine, I have not tested a lot. I saw some rare error
in one execution, not 100% sure if it was because this piece of code
(I don't think so)

Hope that will help...
