Well, at the moment everything works (with the exception of the #undef
slots problem) with the python framework that ships with OS X Tiger,
and applying a patch means *moving to* building a custom interpreter
for us. Personally I was very excited about how nailed down and easy
deployment of sip and pyqt became with the qt-4 releases - which was
anything but a selling point before that.
As Miguel says, it would also be a shame that the import name would
change between versions. I know the code is not in the beta stage that
it was when I brought this up before, but I personally think that the
PyQt4 package serves no purpose and should be removed entirely.
Elementtree is becoming (already?) part of the stdlib, and uic and
pyqtconfig should also live at the top level.
BTW, what ever became of the #undef slots problem, Phil? Did you ever
add something for that?
