sip doesn't support multiple inheritance in Python classes . It does support 
C++ classes which have multiple base classes, so you could create your
own C++ classes that inherit from KXMLGuiClient and QObject and wrap them. 

It won't work in PyKDE4 either. It won't change unless Phil modifies sip, and 
I suspect there are good reasons why that isn't going to happen, but can't 
speak for Phil.
