Thanks for the nice words, especially after I haven't been too helpful in 
fixing remaining PyKDE bugs.

I am spending a lot of time on PyKDE4 (for KDE4), and one of the things I'm 
doing is trying to both test and develop working examples for as many of the 
classes as I can before the "official" release sometime in October.

I do appreciate your earlier bug reports, and will try to make sure those are 
fixed in the initial release.

Thanks again,
