Because nobody maintains them.

No it doesn't. At least not here on Debian, I have PyQt4, PyQt3 and
PyKDE3 bindings installed from Debian packages. The reason is that
Debian decided to not build kdebingings PyKDE version, but the updated
one from the riverbank site.

Get a KDE svn account and update the bindings.

The plan for kde4 is to maintain the python bindings completely inside
KDE svn, last time I heard at least.
